Nanaimo filmmaker Michael Chen needs likes on his short film The Moon and the Stars to help him win Whistler Film Festival challenge.

Nanaimo director Michael Chen is hoping people give him the thumbs up on his short film The Moon and the Stars.

The film is competing for top spot in the Whistler Film Festival’s Canon Hi5 Short Film Challenge.

The challenge asked participants to create a film in five days with a Canon Camera. Participants in the challenge were allowed to choose any genre for their film but could only use ambient light during filming.

Part of the component in choosing the winners is to get votes by having people hit the like button on the video. People have until Dec. 4 to watch and like the video for it to be considered by the judges.

The winner of the challenge will receive a C 100 mkll Canon camera valued at $6,800.
