MADISON, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 09/09/13 -- Today, Coldwell Banker Real Estate announced an industry first with the debut of the Coldwell Banker® Online International Real Estate Film Festival that will run from Sept. 9 through Sept. 27 on the Coldwell Banker® On Location(SM) YouTube channel. The brand's online film festival is three-week event showcasing a compilation of professionally produced and consumer-generated videos -- all uniquely focused on the significance and meaning of what makes a house a home.

The Coldwell Banker Online Real Estate Film Festival will present the top 10 films from the recently concluded Coldwell Banker / MOFILM global competition, which showcase the "value of a home" as seen through the eyes of filmmakers from around the world, including India, Brazil, Mexico, China and the United States. The top 10 films from this competition will be shown in descending order, with a new film posted every weekday at 11:00 a.m. ET beginning Sept. 9.

"Videos have a powerful way of providing a glimpse into the special role our homes play in all of our lives," said Sean Blankenship, senior vice president of marketing at Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. "It's why for generations, we've made home movies; first with video recorders and now with our smartphone devices at the touch of a button. For the first time in the industry, Coldwell Banker is hosting an online international film festival to showcase just what home really means to consumers and even amateur filmmakers across the world."

Following the airing of "Ghar," the MOFILM winning film made by Aashini Shah from Ahmedabad, India, which explores the emotions of a young couple making a cultural break from the tradition of living with their extended family, the online film festival also will feature two new properties from the Coldwell Banker "World's Most Expensive Homes" video series.

The online film festival will conclude in the last week of September with the unveiling of the top three consumer-generated videos from the Coldwell Banker® recently launched "Life, Camera, Action" YouTube Contest that remains open until Sept. 22, with the winning entrant earning a $25,000 grand prize that will be announced on Sept. 27, the final day of the film festival.
