Miami, FL, March 22, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Popurri TV (popurri.tv) announced today in Miami, Florida, the opening of the World's First Contest for NanoFilms, which are very short movies produced and filmed by cell phones that tell an entire story in no more than 5 minutes.
Alvaro Celorio, 22, the young man behind this contest, explained that he came up with the idea because, as an actor and cultural promoter himself, he knows very well the enormous reservoir of talent that is dormant among the Hispanic population throughout the Americas, from Alaska in the United States to Tierra del Fuego in Argentina. As he explained it, his goal with this contest is to open a wide window into all of those young Latino artists so that their talent is showcased properly for the world to watch and evaluate.
Alvaro Celorio hopes that this contest will also encourage the artists to produce their best work in a very short narrative. “Today, for people of my generation, a short story is better than a long novel because nobody has the time to sit for very long. This is true for movies as well.”
Contestants may submit their NanoFilms through the website x27film.com from any country of the Americas as long as they are produced and directed by Latinos or with a Latino Subject. The participation is completely free and the contestants may submit as many NanoFilms as they wish. The contest will be open until May 22,2015.
X27film.com is a nonprofit organization founded by Alvaro Celorio to showcase the talent of latino artists. The competition rules are posted at x27film.com (www.x27film.com).
