Nearly $30K in Prize Money Offered for Five-Minute Films Themed: "This is Santa Anita"


Arcadia, CA, Feb. 5, 2014 -- While filming has commenced for the third annual Santa Anita Park/HRTV Film Festival, aspiring filmmakers and film students still have ample opportunity to submit entries for the non-fiction competition --entitled: "This is Santa Anita."

The popular festival -- which began at the outset of the current Santa Anita meeting -- is encouraging talented individuals to participate by submitting Santa Anita-based films with a maximum running time of five minutes.

With the extended Santa Anita meeting this year, competitors have additional time to hone their entries.  Thus, the competition will continue through April 13, and all film submissions are due by April 23. Online voting will begin on April 26, and close on May 4. Winners will be announced at Santa Anita on May 10.

Application entries are available in-person or online at www.hrtv.com/filmfestival. (While entries are accepted online, credentials must be picked-up, and payment must be made, at Santa Anita.  Checks may be made payable to the Los Angeles Turf Club, Inc.)
 
"This is Santa Anita" entries will be judged by an esteemed panel of racing and entertainment professionals and the competition will include prize money for the top five entries. First prize will be $10,000, with second prize at $4,000, while third through fifth prizes will be $2,000, $1,500, and $500, respectively.  An additional $10,000 first prize -- Fan Favorite -- will be awarded to the winner through an online poll.  The entries judged to be in sixth through 10th places will receive free entry to the 2015 competition.
 
This year's general entry fee has been reduced to $50 and students (with valid student identification) may enter for $20 by March 1. Those entering after that date may do so for $75 and $50, respectively.
 
Also, each entrant will be given two film festival credentials which will allow shooting access to select public areas at Santa Anita, and receive 10 Clubhouse passes good for admission throughout Santa Anita's winter/spring meeting.
