HATCH Fest opens Call for Entries for HATCH 11

HATCHExperience-11-logoWebReadyHATCH has evolved from the early days into a community, movement, and a series of experiences designed to ACTIVATE CREATIVITY to HATCH a better world. In it’s 11th year, HATCH connects with Intel and 100 of the most provocative innovators, inventors, and cultural catalysts — across a wide range of disciplines to offer 360 degree peer to peer mentoring to refuel and reignite your creative soul. We mix this group with up and coming students, and entrepreneurs to further ignite a vibrant entrepreneurial landscape. Every year the HATCHers put out a call for the new HATCH community to create films that let us see “Your Passion Inside.”

It’s time to ask yourself: How you do you pursue your passion? What brings your passion to life? Where can you see your passion changing the world? All a HATCH film has to do is answer one or some or all of these questions (or maybe more!) in a short film format. All styles, genres, and passion are accepted. Give us your narrative, your music videos, your documentary, your avante-garde film passion!

You can check out the details below or head over to HATCH Experience and to submit your entry through HATCH website or contact the festival here.
