60 More Seconds in Lockdown

 

We know that you are doing lots of creative things at the moment, so why not share that creativity and submit your film to our ultra-short film competition - 60 More Seconds in Lockdown.

Hopefully you will have access to basic filmmaking equipment - through your phone, digital camera or otherwise - so join our celebration of everyone’s creativity with us and be in with a chance of seeing your short film on the big screen.

The competition is open to first time and experienced film makers of all ages. There is no
lockdown on the subject matter, minimum (or maximum) budget and no set genre you must work to. There are just two simple rules; 

  • Your film MUST have been created on or after January 6, 2021
  • Your film MUST be 60 seconds or under (including titles and credits)
