Film Independent & HieronyVision: 30 x 30 Contest

On May 15, HieronyVision and Film Independent surprised 30 young filmmakers with a year of free membership in recognition of their talents. The winners of the 30 x 30 contest were hand-selected by both organizations. 25 of the winners are current film school students at NYU, UCLA, CSU Los Angeles, University of Chicago, and Chapman University, chosen by their professors in consultation with Film Independent and HV. An additional 5 winners were chosen from a pool of independent applicants not affiliated with any of the participating film schools. These 30 filmmakers are a diverse and accomplished group from a range of different backgrounds all over the world.

At HV, we were thrilled at such an enthusiastic response to this contest! It was a difficult decision to narrow down the field of talented applicants. In addition, HV also awarded 15 finalists a full year of Artist Membership at our site. The winners and finalists, along with their works, will all be featured in the Movies section of our site over the course of the next month. We are excited to showcase the talent and passion for filmmaking on our website and across social media. We also look forward to working with these young directors, writers, producers, actors and more to help them realize their visions! If you’re interested in discovering a rising generation of filmmakers, become an HV Member today!
