‘OUT for Greatness’ is a series sponsored by Hyundai that celebrates the authentic and inclusive stories and storytellers within the LGBTQIA+ community.  The Director for the second installment of Hyundai’s ‘OUT for Greatness’ content will be selected from the films that screen at Outfest Fusion’s “One Minute Movie Contest.”

One filmmaker will be awarded: THE 2020 HYUNDAI EMERGING DIRECTOR AWARD

This award includes the opportunity to create a :60 spec commercial for Hyundai that features a story from a queer perspective.  This spec commercial will play at the many LGBTQIA+ events that Hyundai sponsors and may be used as a commercial sample for our filmmaker’s demo reel.  The Emerging Filmmaker will be mentored by an established Director and Producer who will support & guide them through the creative process. Hyundai will provide the budget, a professional production team, production guidelines and a stipend for the filmmaker.  Commercial script will be submitted in advance of production for notes, changes and/or final approval by Hyundai.  Additionally, a behind the scenes ‘Making Of’ will also be created to showcase the mentorship between our community of emerging and established creatives working together.

As part of Hyundai’s mission to build a better future, we are excited to support the next generation of storytellers. Pre-Production, Production and Post will commence in LA over 2 months in April and May of 2020.
