Cadillac Sponsors 'Make Your Mark' Film Competition

DETROIT, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Producers Guild of America and Cadillac yesterday announced the start of the "Make Your Mark" short film competition. Producers nationwide will compete for the opportunity to have a portion of their film, and their name, to be featured in Cadillac's 30-second spot that will air on ABC during the 2015 Oscars.

The competition honors the work of renowned Academy Award® winning filmmaker Saul Zaentz ("The English Patient," "Amadeus," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"), who passed away earlier this year. 

From now until 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 25, 2014, contestants can enter the Make Your Mark competition at makeyourmarkcompetition.com Once accepted to the competition, entrants will be asked to create a three-to-five-minute short film that draws upon the storytelling and work of Saul Zaentz. Rules and creative specifications will be released on June 27, 2014 at 5 p.m. EDT and contestants will have 51 hours to complete their short film. 

Ten semi-finalists will be announced on or around July 29, 2014, and three finalists will be announced on or around August 25, 2014. The three finalists will collaborate with a Producers Guild mentor to produce a further refined three-to-five-minute short film. The winning short and producer will be announced on January 24, 2015 at the 2015 Producers Guild Awards. 

"The Producers Guild of America and Cadillac are both looking to enable and celebrate achievement," said Uwe Ellinghaus, Global Cadillac chief marketing officer. "Through our collaboration with the PGA, we are designing a competition for the next generation of producers."

Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. Today Cadillac is growing globally, driven by an expanding product portfolio featuring dramatic design and technology.
