AtomFilms and Lucasfilm Ltd. Announce the 4th Annual Star Wars Fan Film Awards - Renowned Competition Calls for Submissions by March 8


January 10, 2005

Entrants in this year’s Fan Film Awards will compete for the George Lucas Selects Award, which comes with a cash prize of $2,000 and the recognition of George Lucas, who selects the competition’s best film. Winners of all prizes will be announced at Lucasfilm’s massive Star Wars Celebration III fan event, which will take place April 21-24 in Indianapolis, Indiana, just weeks before the long-awaited theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

The official support and participation of Lucasfilm have made the Star Wars Fan Film Awards the world’s premier fan film event. Finalists in past competitions have been viewed over 10,000,000 times at AtomFilms’ Fan Film Awards Web site, and this year’s event is expected to attract both a record number of submissions and a record audience.

4th Annual Star Wars Fan Film Awards timeline:
- Deadline for submission is March 8, 2005. Visit http://starwars.atomfilms.com for submission guidelines
- All 2005 finalists will be announced on March 29, 2005 for viewing and online voting to determine the Audience Choice award

- Winners will be announced at Star Wars Celebration III on Friday night, April 22 2005.

“Lucasfilm is delighted work with AtomFilms once again on the fourth Star Wars Fan Film Awards,” said Steve Sansweet, Lucasfilm’s head of fan relations. “George Lucas is a great supporter of independent film and participates in the Star Wars Fan Film Awards because he wants to encourage a new generation of filmmakers to develop their talent.”

“Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon unlike any other,” said Scott Roesch, VP Marketing AtomShockwave Corp. “We’re very happy to be working with Lucasfilm to provide this unique opportunity for Star Wars fans and up-and-coming filmmakers.”

Submission instructions and past Fan Film Award winners are currently available on the Fan Film Awards site (www.starwars.atomfilms.com).
