Want to win £10,000?

Calling all short filmmakers: the reed.co.uk Short Film Competition 2015 is open for entries.

Now in our sixth year, we want you to make a short film centred on the theme of ‘The Question'; you could win £10,000.

And for the second year running, we’ve joined up with Channel 4, BAFTA, Met Film School, Creative England and the British Council, to make sure our winners gain the recognition and skills they need to take the next step in their careers.

The challenge

We want you to write, shoot and edit a film no longer than 3 minutes. Easy, right? And you need to base your film on the theme, ‘The Question.’

Be funny, be serious, be artistic, be thought provoking. Shoot with a film crew or just shoot on your mobile. However you choose to make your film, make sure you submit your entry by 25 January 2015 and you could win one of four prizes.
