COLLEGE FILMMAKING CHALLENGE 2016
The College Filmmaking Challenge is a competition for AS/A2 Level students to produce a short film meeting 3 simple criteria.
Given just the title and a line of dialogue students are challenged to make a film up to 4 minutes in length – but beyond that creative freedom is theirs!
The films will be judged, screened and awarded prizes during SFW: Youth Film Festival SHOWCASE and networking event.
Details of the 2017 Challenge will also be announced.
