Competition opportunity for young North Devon film makers.
Education charity Into Film are calling for submissions of short films from young people aged 19 and under.
Here are the entry categories:
Best Animation: 12 and under; 13 and over.
You can enter any kind of animation to the Best Animation categories. Whether it's silhouette cut-outs; clay-mation, a flip book animation, or a combination of all of these techniques, Into Film want to see what young people can create when they use film to bring their imagination to life.
Best Live Action: 12 and under; 13 and over.
Live action films can be any genre, but the judges want to see fantastic creativity, innovative use of filming techniques and brilliant stories.
Best Documentary: 12 and under; 13 and over.
True stories documented skillfully. Entries can be dramatic recreations, or take a more artistic or experimental approach to documentary storytelling but most of all Into Film want to hear young peoples' voices, and see their vision through film.
Into Space and Home: 12 and under; 13 and over.
To celebrate the imaginative work conducted on European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Tim Peake's Principia mission, Into Film has teamed up with the UK Space Agency again to deliver an exciting new filmmaking competition for 5-19 year-olds, Into Film: Into Space & Home. Budding young filmmakers can enter this out-of-this-world competition by creating short films inspired by space exploration and Tim's stellar mission.
The deadline for entries is Tuesday 31 January 2017. All nominees will be invited to the awards ceremony at the ODEON Cinema, Leicester Square in London, on Tuesday 14 March 2017. You can find further details and enter the Awards here: https://www.intofilm.org/awards
