    LOS ANGELES (January 10, 2004) _ The entry deadline for the fourth
    annual DIY Film Festival, part of the DIY Convention, arrives on Jan.

    The event honors independent and self-produced feature and short
    films in the drama, comedy, documentary and animation categories made
    after Jan. 1, 2001 and shot in DV, Beta, HDTV, 16mm or 35mm.

    All entries must be created using commonly-available tools of
    independent filmmaking without financing from a major film studio or

    Submitted films will be judged by a panel of industry experts using
    the following criteria:

    1) The filmmaker's ability to tell an interesting and amusing story.

    2) The unique use of DIY marketing resources in making and marketing
    the film.

    Film Festival and for year-round screenings in Los Angeles and other
    cities hosting DIY Convention events, including San Francisco, New
    Orleans, New York, Austin, among others.

    returned. A registration form is available online at under "upcoming events," or can be registered
