SeeFlik will bring 20 shorts from student filmmakers to Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand.
The shorts – culled from the top 20 finallists who took part in SeeFlik’s online student contest The Competition 2011 – will reach a potential audience of 20m of Comcast Xfinity’s TV homes from now until Mar 31.
“Our competition gives emerging young artists a platform to reach many that may not have had the chance to see these engaging shorts,” SeeFlik CEO Lawrence R Mel said. “By expanding viewers’ access to these films on Xfinity TV, we hope to build awareness around how films – and our entertainment – continues to bridge cultures, peoples and understanding.”
Seeflik will pay the top six finallists from a prize pool of $50,000 and the competition winners will also get the opportunity to be mentored by David Greenblatt in Los Angeles.
