News: Virgin Media Short Film Festival

Short film competitions are pretty cool at the best of times, giving aspiring filmmakers a platform upon which to show off their work to people who are not only interested, but also people who can help kick start a career.

Virgin Media Shorts is one such festival, only there’s one key difference: the judging panel is headed up by This Is England director Shane Meadows, which is fantastic! Who better to show your work to than one of England’s finest working filmmakers, as well as a director who started his career as a prolific director of short films?

The winner will receive £30,000 in funding and support from the BFI for their next film, and the People’s Choice award winner will receive £5,000 worth of Nikon camera equipment. Not too bad, eh?

Submissions are open from today for three months, so grab the camera and get filming!
