Submit Your Film, Catch The Germ When It Returns

Aspiring film makers have the opportunity this month to submit their film to The Germ film project and have it viewed by an audience.

The Germ, a Central Valley film project that aims to inspire filmmakers of all skill levels, returns for its first screening of the year on Feb. 21.

The minds behind the project challenge filmmakers to take the inspiration and film limitations featured on its website and create a short film based on them.

The topic for this installment of the popular film project is food.

Each submission must feature at least four characters and a line of dialogue that was given by the project's creators.

All submissions are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 18.

The screening will be held on Thursday, Feb. 21 2013, at 7 p.m. at Windsong Productions, 7676 N. Palm Ave., Suite 104, in Fresno.
