Your opportunity to have your short film showcased at a film festival this July

Are you a budding film maker? Do you feel strongly about equality? Have you got a creative idea for a short film?

 The Meniscus Community Film Society, in conjunction with Safer and Stronger Communities, is inviting entries into a short film competition which has the theme of equalities and diversity, prejudice and discrimination, and bullying. 

All you need is a camera and a story line to develop your ideas and perfect your short films, which must be no longer than 10 minutes. Films can be made as an individual, team, class or school effort, and entries are invited in four age categories from seven to adult. 

Examples of topics that you can make films on include:

  • Prejudice or discrimination based on

-          age

-          disability

-          gender reassignment

-          marriage and civil partnership

-          pregnancy and maternity

-          race

-           religion and belief

-          sex or sexual orientation. 

The deadline for submitting your entry is 30th April, and it is completely free to take part! 

Short listed films will be showcased at a Film Festival on Thursday, July 4, 2013 at FranklinCollege, Grimsby and prizes will be up for grabs for the winning entries.
