The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod launched the “POSITIVELY DIFFERENT Video Contest” in  October as part of their  milestone 90th Anniversary Celebration.  Entrants were invited to submit brief (up to ninety-second), creative videos showcasing what they think makes the Cape “positively different”.  They were encouraged to be creative, have fun and spotlight what makes the Cape special to them.

The team of local judges watched all of the entries together and selected the twenty finalists.  Among the judges were nationally recognized director and Falmouth resident Bill Cuccinello, Arts Foundation of Cape Cod Executive Director Kevin Howard, Cape Cod Times Arts & Entertainment Editor and Movie Critic Tim Miller, former L.A.-based film director and current owner of The Box Office Café in Chatham Paul Schuyler, and Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce CEO Wendy Northcross. Winners will be announced on February 1, 2012.
