A Wrinkle in Time Contest: Searching for the Next Visionary Filmmaker

  • Published on:  1/19/2018
  • In celebration of the upcoming release of A WRINKLE IN TIME and its visionary director, Ava DuVernay, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Nissan North America have launched a nationwide search for the next visionary filmmaker! During this challenge, Disney is seeking to inspire innovative filmmakers – especially female filmmakers - to step up and share their unique storytelling voice. One lucky winner will be awarded $100,000 to create their own film, a trip to Hollywood for the World Premiere of A Wrinkle in Time, and an all-new 2018 Nissan LEAF! To enter: www.AWITFilmChallenge.com Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time opens in theatres in 3D March 9th!From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

    Not very visionary though to make this possible only for US Residents and (pretty much) for girls...

    I'm a male and I'd love to join, but I'm not that sure about my chances of winning now, because they explicitly say they particularly want females to join

    Well unless the entries are viewed on their own merit, without knowing the filmmaker’s name or gender, so there would be no bias in the judging and selection process, I feel there wouldn’t even be a reason for an aspiring male director to try.

    If you make a contest...pls. let other continents join too. Theres Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and even South America. Canada and Mexico can't join either, but they're neighbouring countries!...But either way, good luck you gals (and guys), do your very best

    1:17 will be extremely surprised if a male wins this. I am all for the strong female presence in this movie, and happy for the world that my daughter is going to grow up in. But this absolutely feels like a contest that an aspiring female director has an upper hand, but just say that, I(a male filmmaker) am cool with it. Good luck to everyone that enters ❤️👍

    I can’t believe men are so triggered over this. Finally women get a chance to be in the spotlight and be a huge part of major films and y’all are salty abt it
