Chevrolet is sponsoring the competition with MOFILM, a production company that helps up-and-coming filmmakers create videos for big companies and social causes. They want new directors to create a short movie that captures the essence of the Chevrolet brand and the car’s passion for the American spirit. Filmmakers interested in entering the contest may submit their entries until April 4. More information can be found at MOFILM’s official website at: http://bit.ly/dKldfr.
