Entries are currently being taken for the 1st Bi-Annual DSLR Cinema International Film Festival, which invites budding videographers to submit five-minute shorts shot exclusively on digital cameras. In a nod to Alfred Hitchcock, the theme for the inaugural competition is “Speechless”—meaning that the films must do all their storytelling without using any dialogue. Among the contestants is Shunsuke Teshima, an indie director “based mostly in Tokyo,” who shot his diffident romance You, Me & A Cup of Coffee in Akasaka, with Russian model Anna Marchenko and Japanese actor Kensaku Tamura. Other aspiring moviemakers are invited to submit works of their own by March 31. All of the entries will be posted on the DSLR Cinema Vimeo channel, and three winners will be announced on April 10.
