Announcing the MixBit and Slamdance Trailer Competition

Here at MixBit we love creators of all types. That’s why we’re very pleased to announce our new partnership with The Slamdance Film Festival.

Slamdance is the world’s leading independent film festival. Not only do they provide a place for upcoming filmmakers to get discovered, they foster the same kind of open, friendly and creative community we’re fostering here at MixBit.

Through our partnership, filmmakers whose works have been accepted to this year’s festival will be able to upload their trailers to our platform. The ten best trailers will be selected by a panel to play throughout the week of the festival. And Chad Hurley, Co-Founder of MixBit and YouTube, will select one lucky winner to receive a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

We’re so excited that these filmmakers will be making their trailers available on our platform. Together we’ll demonstrate the future of online video–one where audience engagement is driven via the open remixing and sharing of content that always links back to the original work.

Check out mixbit.com/slamdance for more information and to view trailers starting December 16th.
