Budding Spielbergs urged to submit festival entries

Have your say

THE final call has been made for budding filmmakers from Edinburgh to submit their mini-motion pictures to the Co-operative Film Festival.

Young people, aged 19 or under, have until August 31 to get their entries into the national film festival and stand the chance of seeing their production premiere on the silver screen.

Entries to the festival, which is now in its 46th year, should be no more than six minutes long and will be viewed and selected by a panel of film and media professionals.

The festival is being staged during Co-operatives United”, a week-long celebration being hosted by the Co-operative as part of the global culmination of the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives. The films will be shown in Manchester, on November 1 and 2.

Filmmakers are encouraged to tackle issues that concern them through drama, documentary, animation, comedy, music video or silent movie.
