Judges will be Barry Ryan of Warp Films, producer Howard Dawson and Everyman Cinemas CEO Andrew Myers.
A new competition in Leeds, UK is asking filmmakers to create a short film in under three days. The 2.8 Days Later short film competition will take place November 18-20 with as many as 150 filmmakers participating in the competition.
The competition will feature industry professionals leading workshops on the different aspects of the filmmaking process, as well as aid the filmmakers as they develop their films. The competition is supported in collaboration by shopping giant, Trinity Leeds, Everyman Cinema and film production company Left Eye Blind.
“This is adrenaline filmmaking at its best. It’s no secret that the future of funding for British film is uncertain at the moment and this is a great example of how private business can support grass roots, independent filmmaking,” said Matt Maude, Left Eye Blind co-founder.
After the three-day filmmaking process, Barry Ryan of Warp Films film producer Howard Dawson and Everyman Media Group CEO Andrew Myers will select the best project to be shown as a trailer at Everyman cinemas across London. The winners will be announced in Leeds in spring 2012.
Registration for the competition closes on November 15, 2011.
