The Exeter Picturehouse has launched a new film competition especially for its members -or rather, the Picturehouse chain, which includes the Exeter Picturehouse, has launched a film competition for its members.
One lucky member will win the chance to make their own short film to be showcased in the trailer reels before every feature film at Picturehouse Cinemas across the UK.
The judging panel includes; Asif Kapadia (director, Senna, Amy), Barbara Broccoli (producer, Skyfall, SPECTRE), Danny Perkins (CEO of StudioCanal), Ben Roberts (director of BFI Film Fund), Kate Gardiner (head of Fox Searchlight UK), Tim Bevan (producer, The Theory Of Everything, Les MisÃ©rables), Tessa Ross (executive producer, Slumdog Millionaire, 12 Years A Slave), Clare Binns (director of programming and acquisitions, Picturehouse Cinemas), Gurinder Chadha (director, Bride And Prejudice, Bend It Like Beckham), Edith Bowman (presenter), Lolly Thomson (McCann London co-president), Charles Gant (film critic, Heat, The Guardian) and Picturehouse Members.
To enter the competition you don’t have to make a film, you need to submit a short treatment or script of 300-500 words, using the theme of ‘belonging’ as inspiration.
The final film must be no more than two minutes long and the closing date for submissions is 29 April 2016.
Creation of the winning film will be fully funded by Picturehouse Cinemas, guided throughout production by creative agency McCann and the film will play for several months in all 23 Picturehouse Cinemas.
You will need a valid Picturehouse Membership to enter, which they can help you with at Exeter Picturehouse.
