I was so thrilled to read this morning that Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer (who's also a producer, by the way) has launched her own short film contest! She's carrying it out through her Facebook fan page, and asking people to submit a link to their film to her fan page before February 10. It seems this is an effort by Spencer to help broaden the playing field for independent filmmakers who need a place to have their work seen. Check out the article here for more details, and visit her fan page to submit a link to yoru film.
