Keepers of the Water (a $500 movie)

What would you come up with, if someone offered you a video camera and 500 bucks to go shoot your own movie? The Toronto International Film Festival did just that, to find emerging filmmakers, and the above film Keepers of the Water is my pick from among the five finalists in the competition. Go see the film and the other four – they are all quite good – and cast your vote:

TIFF® Talent Lab presents the Emerging Filmmakers Competition in support of up-and-coming filmmakers. The idea was simple: give filmmakers a video camera, $500 and ask them to create something original on the subject of water.

TIFF’s jury panel has selected their top five, and now it’s your chance to vote for your favourite short and give an emerging filmmaker a shot at winning the Fan Favourite Award, which will be presented at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival®.

After selecting one film of your choice, you’ll be taken to our contest entry page for your chance to WIN+ a TIFF Festival Red Carpet Experience worth $5,000!
