What is it about sunglasses?
We don’t know why sunglasses instantly make us look cool – we just know they do! Filmmakers have known for a long time that sunglasses immediately add mystery, and mystery adds excitement. Celebrities who first started wearing sunglasses to hide their identity or the flash of the light bulbs from the paparazzi quickly cemented the link between sunglasses and glamour.
Now, it’s time for a new generation of filmmakers to define cool in their own movies, made on anything from today’s high-tech digital cameras to their smartphones! Show us your Samba Cool in a video from 30 to 120 seconds in length, and you could be the winner of our first Samba Cool Film Festival Contest.
First Prize is $1000 toward producing your next video, with other cool prizes as well. See the Rules below for more information.
What We’re Looking For
