Film commission seeking entries for Utah TV ads

The Utah Film Commission is seeking entrants to produce and direct a television commercial that will air during the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.

Contestants can submit a campaign or individual commercials that promote Utah as a viable place to make motion pictures. Up to four 30-second commercials will be chosen to represent the commission during the Sundance Film Festival on Park City Television's "In the Can" program. The spots will air in Park City during the festival, which is scheduled for Jan. 19-29.

Winners will receive $1,500 cash per winning commercial, an official Utah Film Commission coat, passes to the Sundance Film Festival and tickets to various receptions and parties at the festival.

An application of intent is due Sept. 30, and entries are due Dec. 2. Winners will be announced at a Utah Film Commission holiday luncheon in December.

Details are available by calling Ricardo Flores of the Utah Film Commission at 801-538-8740 or e-mailing rcflores@utah.gov.
