We’re incredibly excited to announce Firefox Flicks, a campaign giving everyone an opportunity to produce short films that highlight what makes Mozilla Firefox different, that we’re a non-profit organization helping keep the power of the Web in people’s hands. We’re encouraging users, fans, filmmakers, animators everywhere to submit high-quality videos that will help more mainstream Internet users learn about the issues that affect their online lives and, more importantly, how Firefox addresses these issues.
Submissions for Firefox Flicks will be accepted February–April 2012 and are divided into four regions: US & Canada, Latin America, Asia and Europe (you can enter no matter where you live and you’ll be associated with the closest region). Anyone can enter —all you need is creativity and a love of Firefox and our philosophy of openness and improving everyone’s online experience.
The short films can be entered into any of four categories:
- Best :30 Spot
- Best Use of New Open Technology (e.g. Popcorn.js, HTML5, etc.)
- Best Animation
- Best Public Service Announcement
We’ll be sharing more details over the coming months, including Hollywood judges, events and prizes for our winning submissions. You can visit www.firefoxflicks.org for more details and be sure to follow our blog and Twitter for upcoming announcements. Check out the videos from the previous Firefox Flicks for some inspiration!
