Now in its fifth year, the reed.co.uk Short Film Competition invites all filmmakers to create a three minute film for a chance to win a top prize of £10,000, an exclusive mentoring opportunity and bespoke skills training.
Entrants are tasked to write, shoot and edit a funny, artistic or thought-provoking short film around the theme of ‘family business’. The calibre of entries is expected to be high thanks to the expert panel of judges and partners, which includes BAFTA, Channel 4, British Council, Creative England and Total Film.
This year’s competition features more opportunities to win than ever before with four prizes being awarded:
· Grand Prix – decided by the panel of expert judges, one filmmaker will win £10,000 plus funding, training and expert mentoring
· Judges’ Commendation – also decided by the judging panel, £1,000 prize plus skills training
· People’s Choice Award – chosen by the public via an online vote, £1,000 prize plus skills training
· Best Young Filmmaker – entrants who are 25 or under on the 22nd of January 2014 will be eligible to win £1,000, skills training and a six-week paid internship
The deadline for entries into the competition is 22nd January 2014. Visit www.reed.co.uk/film for more information.
