One Minute Movie Competition

The Department of Film and Creative Writing is pleased to announce its inaugural One-Minute Movie Competition!

This year, the University’s Arts and Science Festival (Monday 16th – Sunday 22nd March) is running on the theme of ‘Sight and Sound’, and we are asking you to submit one-minute films on that topic. You can take any approach you like – fact or fiction, literal or abstract, it’s up to you.

The competition is open to all University of Birmingham students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and the winner will be announced at a Department of Film and Creative Writing Screening Event to be held on the evening of Tuesday 17th March  2015.

First prize is an Amazon Kindle Fire HD!

The Rules

  1. Your film must match the theme of ‘Sight and Sound’.
  1. You must have copyright control of any audio or visual material that goes into your movie. This means either filming it yourself or using audio-visual material to which you have copyright permission. There are many sources of copyright free images, videos, music and other audio material available online that can be used under appropriate Creative Commons licenses.
  1. Your film must not exceed one-minute (60 seconds) in length.

Deadline for Submissions

1.00pm on Friday 6th of March

Submission Format

Films can be submitted on DVD to the Film and Creative Writing departmental office (4th Floor, Arts, opposite the lifts) to Jemma Saunders or Dr. Richard Langley.

Alternatively, films can be submitted via a USB drive at the same location, again to either Jemma or Richard.

Questions

If you have any questions about format, content, copyright, or anything else related to the competition, then please email Dr. Richard Langley on r.m.langley@bham.ac.uk.
