Crazy8s 2017 Registration is pleased to support Crazy8s 2017!

Calling All Filmmakers!

Crazy8s wants to see your brilliant short film idea!

Crazy8s is once again inviting aspiring filmmakers to submit their short film idea in a 5-minute video pitch for one of the leading film events in BC.

Six winners will receive $1,000 and a production package worth tens of thousands of dollars – almost everything you need to make your film – in just 8 Crazy days!

Finished films will be screened to the who’s who of the Vancouver Film Industry at a Gala Screening on February 25th, 2017 at the Centre (this year over 1,750 people attended), followed by a not-to-be-missed After-Party at Science World followed by submissions to film festivals and markets nationally and around the world.

It’s fast! It’s fun! It’s Crazy!


The application fee of $50 (cash or cheque payable to Crazy8s Film Society) and completed application form should be brought to the registration session.

Or applicants must drop off or mail in an application and the $60 late registration fee (don’t mail cash) which must be received by 5pm November 2nd to:
Crazy8s Production Office
Suite 600 – 736 Granville Street
Vancouver, BC V6Z 1G3

Wednesday, November 2nd in person at the Celluloid Social Club at the ANZA Club between 7:30pm – 10pm

A video pitch jury will then select the top 40 projects to pitch in-person to a jury of Industry professionals in late November. The jury will choose 12 finalists who will be paired with a professional story editor to craft their script before presenting it again to the jury. Based on the strength of the finished scripts, 6 winners will be chosen. Production and post-production will take place from February 10th – 17th, 2017.
