Superman Fan Film Wins Award and $300

The annual Superman Celebration took place in Metropolis, IL on June 13-14; for the second year running, a superhero fan film contest was held as part of the festivities. Filmmaker George Doerr nabbed the grand prize this time out, along with a cool $300, for his fan film, Villains Day Off. Between the Tuscon contest mentioned yesterday and this one, looks like fan films are starting to pay off for some folks.

  1. Hello!
    I have a question:
    Accepting prize money could hurt the non-profit rules for fanfilms?

    You’re right–it could be considered profiting from someone else’s copyrighted work, so they were in fact breaking the law. Whether DC would go after the winners to get the money is another thing entirely.
