9th Annual Collaboration Filmmakers Challenge Now Open

Registration is now open for the 9th Annual Collaboration Filmmakers Challenge!

Make films. Build networks.

The CFC is a one-of-a-kind Los Angeles based film contest in its ninth year. Work together with other filmmakers and make your own short film for the chance to be seen by industry decision-makers and win over $12,000 in prizes!

The concept is simple: Give help to at least one other filmmaker in the competition and receive help from at least one other filmmaker in the competition. The best films, as chosen by their celebrity jury, will be shown to a full house at the prestigious Harmony Gold Theater.

​We founded the CFC because we’re filmmakers too, and we know how important networking really is. We strive to build an environment all about collaborating—not just making a movie, but meeting and working with other filmmakers. The end result? More connections, more opportunities, and more movies! Are you a writer in search of a shooter? An editor looking for a director? Don’t worry- we help you find the people you need to execute your vision! ​
