UCL and Raindance Film Festival announce short film competition

12 November 2012

In conjunction with the Raindance Film Festival, UCL has launched a short film competition based on the theme ‘London for free’.

People filming at UCL

UCL is based in one of the world’s most vibrant cities and the competition organisers are keen to see how students and staff view the capital.

‘London for free’ is a campaign to show people that London doesn’t have to be expensive and, in line with this principle, the films don’t need to be produced with high-end equipment: winners will be chosen based on the message and story of the videos rather than the quality of the filming and editing.

Prizes include a £300 Jessop’s voucher, a place on a Raindance training course (either ‘Lo-to-no budget filmmaking’ or ‘Write and sell the hot script’), and all entries will be showcased on UCL’s YouTube channel.

The top 10 filmmakers will also be offered the opportunity to become UCL Student Video Producers, working as part of a production team to produce content using professional recording and editing equipment.

Entries to the competition should be less than two minutes in length and submitted by 6 January 2013.

Article amended on 30 November 2012 to reflect the competition's extended deadline.
