Montague’s public access TV station, MCTV, is sponsoring a town-wide film contest, with a grand award ceremony to be held at the Shea Theater on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Contestants will create a short film, running no longer than two minutes (120 seconds), that shows how Montague is a wonderful, artful, diverse, exciting and desirable place to live and visit. Footage must be original and filmmakers must have clear copyright of all audio and images presented in the film. MCTV is offering training and equipment to borrow.

Six contestants will receive a first prize of $200 in cash for their category. Categories will be determined by the three-person panel of judges after all entries are submitted.

The film contest is open to residents in MCTV’s viewership area of Montague, Gill and “Ervingside,” ages 13 years and older. Contestants must register their intent on the MCTV website by Aug. 28 at 2 p.m. Registration is free and puts you on the mailing list for contest updates and reminders.

Films must be submitted by contest registrants to the station by Aug. 28 at the same time. The submission fee is $10. One film per contestant. See the MCTV website for technical details on submission requirements. More information can be found at
