Film-making competition

Listen to the recording twice.

if you want to make films then you’ll be interested in our new competition. If you are between 11 and 18 you can enter this year’s film-making competition. The film should last no more than 12 minutes, and you should have at least three main characters.

Last year’s winner had eight people in it, but we don’t usually expect so many. This is the third year of the competition. In previous years, we accepted any type of film from horror to comedy.  But this year, we’re looking for a drama. There will be another competition later in the year for people interested in making documentaries. 

We’ve seen some great films over the years from very exciting young filmmakers. Last years films were about the family, and we saw some wonderful entries. This year, however, we want films about the weather.  It can either be about how it makes you feel or how it can change a day. It’s a challenging topic The judges this year are Martha Fernando presenter of our film programme, film world and author of the book about careers in filmmaking called film life.

And the director Mark Mathews whose latest film, Night is now in cinemas. There are some fantastic prizes. Our first prize winner will visit the London International Academy, one of the top film schools. We have other prizes to give away. There are 100 books and also some of the latest cameras to win.

You can upload your films on our website or drop it off on an SD card at our offices in Market Square. The judge’s decision is final. You have the chance to see the best films when they are shown at the town hall. More information about the competition can be found on our website.
