SUTTON, W.Va. -- The West Virginia FILMmakers Festival has extended its deadline for nominations for FILMmaker of the year.
The deadline had been Thursday, but festival director Caitlin Renee Campbell says it's now Aug. 21.
The award goes to whomever the judges decide has had the greatest impact on the state's movie industry.
Past recipients have included "Supersize Me'' director Morgan Spurlock and fellow filmmakers Danny Boyd, Ray Schmitt and Russ Barbour, among others.
The festival is set for Oct. 4-6 in Sutton.
It's open to films shot anywhere, but organizers are especially interested in those filmed in West Virginia, about West Virginia and by people from West Virginia.
Competition categories include: narrative, documentary, shorts, student projects and experimental, animation or music video.
