OPTIMA WANTS
YOU TO ENTER

OPTIMA Batteries is partnering with Formula Drift and the Woodward Dream Cruise giving you the opportunity to have your films screened at two top automotive events. By submitting films ahead of the appropriate cut off date, your films will be reviewed by our expert panel of judges. Selected films will be screened at these events to a live audience of automotive enthusiasts and influencers, giving you the chance to earn respect and visibility as a content creator in the industry.

Who are the judges you ask? Well, they’re guys like David Freiburger of Roadkill, Fred Williams of 4-Wheel & Off Road Magazine, Ryan Tuerck of Formula Drift and Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire. When it comes to automotive story telling and entertaining, there aren’t many better than the names listed above. If your film makes the final cut, it’s because this group decided it was one of the best.

And that’s not all. Some of the films screened at each event will be considered for showing at the OPTIMA Ultimate Film Festival Finale at SEMA, where an audience will vote on the films shown to determine a winner. Think you got what it takes?
