PlayOFF is OFFs break-neck filmmaking competition for everyone. Playing is a big part of this competition: there are no restrictions when it comes to experience or equipment, it is all about being creative under pressure. Amateurs and professionals alike can enter the competition. PlayOFF starts on Friday, August 22, and ends on Sunday, August 24. During those 48 hours, contestants will each make a short film with a maximum running time of three minutes.

Academy Award-winning short film director and Artistic Profile at OFF12, Martin Strange-Hansen, and Ph.D. and researcher in creativity Heidi Phillipsen, will judge the films. To challenge the contestants even further, the films will have to be made with a specific theme and include a certain element, which is only revealed when the competition starts. The winning short film will be announced at the OFF Award show on Friday, August 29.

PLAYOFF REGISTRATION STARTS ON TUESDAY, THE 1ST OF JULY 2014!
