Create Moments That Inspire The World

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) FilmUp's main goal is to leave a lasting imprint on the world of media. This platform and the Moments Contest both mark the beginning of this mission.

Each film must be between 30 - 60 seconds in length (not including credits). FilmUp is seeking short yet powerful pieces. There is no entry fee. Contest details are available at: Submissions open January 1, 2017 and close February 15, 2017. Filmmakers and storytellers across the globe are invited to submit.

Moments Contest Video: A Message from the Founders
Some would say the true beauty of filmmaking is in capturing moments. Those moments that create an inexplicable shift in our perspectives, in our minds, and in our hearts. Those that propel us to the path we're meant to be on, for better or for worse.

FilmUp founders, Aryeh Hoppenstein and Christina Chironna, believe that catching these pivotal moments is a key part of life. It's one of the reasons why they are creating a new platform for filmmakers - to move the world in the best possible direction: up.

Before they launch FilmUp in March 2017, they want YOU to share some of your moments - whether it be a sincere smile from a stranger that gave you hope, a spontaneous trip that opened your mind to new possibilities, a passionate argument that catapulted you in a new direction, or a random act of kindness that completely changed your perspective. Film it, share it, and give the world a chance to catch it. Winners will be notified March 10, 2017.
