A hint fiction writting can lead us to a broader and complex story. Can you imagine making a film from a hint fiction story?
This year, the Hint Fiction Film Constest beside show the talent to create films from 25 words; will also help fund Camp Enchantment, a non-profit program Sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
The short films have to be based on two hint fiction stories and have only one minute duration. It would be very interesting to see the result from a single story. Films are selected for Vail Film Festival presentation by the Hint Fiction Film Contest Programming committee. If your film is selected as a finalist to compete in the 2012 Vail Film Festival “Hint Fiction” program. Here a little video about the Vail Film Festival
