With $40,000.00 in film funding and production services on the line, it's going to be one heck of a competition, and Canada picks the winner! Voting begins on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 8 PM EST for a 24 hr period. During that time, you can vote for your favorite film here or by phone at 1-877-876-3636.
If you still haven't had the chance to watch the competing films, you can do so here ('Films/Schedule' link). For international audiences who may not be able to view the content on the site, you can watch The Beard below!
Written and directed by Yaz Rabadi, The Beard tells the story of an elderly Sikh (Sam Moses) who has been victimized as a result of his racial appearance, and how he struggles to deal with his given circumstances in the aftermath of the violent attack.
