The Rehearsal Project Short-Film Contest Winner Announced!


The Rehearsal Project Short-Film Contest came to a close this week and our judging panel have been hard at work wading through submissions and selecting the winner. In the end it was Jonathan Poritsky‘s short film “Process” (embedded after the jump) that took the prize — selected for astutely and skillfully interpreting the idea of “life as performance” through a simple and beautifully shot monologue from Nazi Karimi.

Flavorpill launched The Rehearsal Project in partnership with GRANTA with the aim to encourage the potential found in literature (in this case Eleanor Catton’s stunning debut The Rehearsal) to reach out and inspire other art forms, and “Process” encapsulates this idea perfectly. Congratulations to Jonathan (a New York-based editor, filmmaker, photographer, blogger, and writer, go figure) and a big thank you to everyone who submitted their work.
