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

  • Published on Jan 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.

    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

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

    Would have been better to have a male category with a prize and a female category with a prize. We know Disney can afford it.

    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.

      this industry is already "especially male filmmakers" so there would be no need whatsoever to say such a thing. there's not a white male alive who wants to pursue filmmaking who even has to stir up a conscience thought to whether or not they will be let in the door simply because of who they are. are you really tired of being "punished" for being a white male or are you just tired of not being the end all beat all in every discussion? I have been "tired of being punished" my entire life for being who I am. I am glad that this very white male bias industry is trying to reach out to EVERYBODY and you should be too. your "whiteness" and "maleness" isn't keeping doors closed to you and I doubt it ever will... so seriously ask yourself what are you REALLY angry about... and then move forward... there's room for us all. peace my friend...

    • Aphrodite Lee
      Aphrodite Lee Year ago +2

      You're getting angry over something that in no way was meant to slight you. she was ENCOURAGING women to try because we are often DISCOURAGED in doing so. Period. They could have EASILY MADE this a "women only" competition but it is not. So... if you want to shoot yourself in the foot because you are taking her statement as bias then that's just sad. If you have a story to tell then I hope you reconsider but... to each his own.

      If this said especially 'Male Filmmakers' YOU could bet that there would be outrage... tired of being punished for being a white male in this world!!

    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

      my application was accepted minutes ago, only to learn that as a Canadian I am not permitted entry! So pumped for about two minutes!

    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

    • Aphrodite Lee
      Aphrodite Lee Year ago +2

      i think you should go for it... she was just encouraging women to try because the door is often closed to us and she wanted to be clear tat it would not be the case. i honestly believe they will choose the best PERSON who has a story to tell... go for it!

      Thymen van Beusekom I think they are just supporting the female directors too since this movie's director is female. But they will pick whichever is best.

    Lets hope this isn't as shady as the Annabelle contest.

    • Z T W L R
      Z T W L R Year ago +1

      I think it was only if you won.

      BOOM FIST Year ago

      Z-T-W-L Roper oh, so if you submitted any idea to them, it became theirs, even if you didnt win?

    • Z T W L R
      Z T W L R Year ago

      There was this whole thing where they let you submit a short film and get to meet some producers and they'd adapt your short into a movie, but they had all ownership of the property and the the only thing the winner got was like $100 but they hid that stuff deep in the terms and conditions.

      BOOM FIST Year ago

      TRISTAN LOFTIN CHANNEL same question as above.

      BOOM FIST Year ago +1

      Z-T-W-L Roper why do people keep saying that the Annabelle contest was shady?

    BOOM FIST Year ago +20

    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 ❤️👍

    • Aphrodite Lee
      Aphrodite Lee Year ago

      i hear ya... and i see a LOT of guys on this thread are feeling like that but i do not believe that to be the case... i think it was just important for her to encourage women to try... if you have a story to tell PLEASE TRY cuz honestly... there's room enough for us all!

  • Ian Channel Studios - Personal

    Ah shoot, got so hyped but I'm a dude so...guess it sucks for me.

    • Aphrodite Lee
      Aphrodite Lee Year ago

      don't shoot yourself in the foot... try if this is what you want. she is ENCOURAGING women to try cuz often times we are not even considered. go for it!
