Welcome to Reel In The Votes

Visualize change

Reel In The Votes, created by filmmakers Richard Linklater and Cathleen Sutherland, hosted a short film contest.

We are proud to support Beto O’Rourke as the next United States Senator from Texas. Early voting begins October 22nd!

Judges were Richard Linklater, Cathleen Sutherland,

Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Hawke.

We accepted 2-3 minute stories (narrative or non-fiction)  as well as

30-second spots in line with Beto’s strive for change.

We welcomed you to bring us your best work and you delivered.

Here's a link to the selected films:

Vote better, vote BETO.

The Background Story

We love Beto.

Not everyone can support a Super PAC (and Beto doesn't want one) but we can all support a deserving candidate through the expression of our art.


So we asked some friends to help us judge a film contest and tap into the creative energy that abounds in Texas and beyond.

         

Winners were honored at Robert Rodriguez's house with Beto in attendance and at a screening of the selected films on October 14th, 2018.
