'Film the House', one of whose many sponsors are the wonderful ALCS, call for submissions for their Short Film and Script Competition.
We’d like to invite student and independent filmmakers from across the UK to take part in this parliamentary based competition, which aims to further advance creativity in the UK and to raise awareness about the importance of Intellectual Property among parliamentarians and those in the creative industries.
The competition is open to student and independent filmmakers and script writers of all ages.
How to Enter
To enter your film or script and for the terms and conditions please visit:
Entries must be received by 31 July 2017
Competition entries will be initially judged by your local MP and then submitted to a national industry judging panel of experts for the final decision.
Shortlisted entrants will be invited to a winners' event at the House of Commons in October 2017, where they’ll be given the opportunity to meet key industry representatives and, for successful entrants, the prizes will range from equipment to professional advice and work experience, to a screening of the winning film.
There are two categories:
- 1 Best short film
- 2 Best script
Copyright for Creators
The creative industries are one of the United Kingdom’s success stories and have consistently outpaced growth of the UK economy as a whole. It is essential that creators know their rights and that parliamentarians can knowledgably consider them when debating any new legislation that impacts intellectual property and the rights of creators.
The UK film industry generated revenues in excess of £4.1 billion in 2015, the second largest market of its kind in the world.
Film the House is a parliamentary film competition sponsored by Lord Clement-Jones, Nigel Adams MP and Kevin Barron MP.
Film the House is supported by: 21st Century Fox; ALCS; BBFC; BFI; BSAC; Industry; Trust; Into Film; Luther Pendragon; NBC Universal; The Motion Picture Association; Warner Bros. Entertainment; Sky; Viacom; Visual Data Ltd; Writers’ Guild of Great Britain
