Producers Guild of America & Cadillac Announce Finalists in Make Your Mark Short Film Competition


Three finalists have been named in the Make Your Mark short film competition sponsored by the Producers Guild of America and Cadillac.

The competition, launched in April, offers producers the opportunity of a lifetime. Each finalist will produce a three-to-five minute short film, collaborating with one of the Make Your Mark short film competition mentors —award-winning producers Bruce Cohen (American Beauty), Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and Peter Saraf (Little Miss Sunshine).

A portion of the winning short film and the producer’s name will be featured in a Cadillac :30 ad spot that will air on ABC during the Oscars ceremony on Sunday, February 22, 2015.

The three finalists, including two two-person teams, were selected by judges from 10 semi-finalists. The finalists are: Michael Burke and Ian Wagner, Alvaro Ron, Tim Wen and Chidi Onyejuruwa.

“The Producers Guild of America and Cadillac look for opportunities to celebrate personal achievement and creativity,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, Global Cadillac chief marketing officer. “With Make Your Mark, we are giving aspiring filmmakers a unique opportunity to feature their talent before a large and highly receptive audience.”

The winning short and producer will be announced at the 2015 Producers Guild Awards on January 24, 2015.
