Submissions are now open for FRANTIC FILMS - an open-entry short film competition for work inspired by the films of Roman Polanski. You get a chance to have your work judged by leading film professionals including: Timothy Burrill (producer “The Pianist”, “Oliver Twist”), Jerzy Skolimowski (scriptwriter “Knife in the Water”) and Pawel Edelman (DOP “The Pianist”, “Carnage”). You are competing to win one of 2 exciting awards:
- Best Film Award winner will receive £1000 worth of film equipment.
- The Audience Award winner will receive a film making course at the London Film Academy.
(Prizes are proudly sponsored by Project London Films)
The submissions deadline is 1 March 2013, so hurry up and SUBMIT!
Whether homage or spoof, a masterpiece or simply the result of an hour playing with your i-phone, FRANTIC FILMS is open to all interpretations, regardless of your previous filmmaking experience. Instead, what counts are the following three criteria, on which all entries will be judged:
- The independent character of the film submitted.
- The quality of its response to Polanski’s cinema.
- Its use of the short film form.
NB. Films should be no longer than 10 minutes in length.
To submit, and for information on terms and conditions please visit the KINOTEKA website: www.kinoteka.org.uk/competition
Shortlisted films will also be presented on the KINOTEKA website and open for electronic audience votes until 15 March 2013.
Awards are proudly sponsored by Project London Films, and the winners will be announced during the 11th KINOTEKA Closing Night Gala on 17 March, at the Barbican, London.
FRANTIC FILMS is part of the 11th KINOTEKA film festival, 7-17th March. KINOTEKA is an annual, UK-wide celebration of polish cinema, organised by the Polish Cultural Institute, London.
