Attack the Block writer/director Joe Cornish will head the jury of Film4’s Scene Stealers jury.
The talent search competition has been launched by Film4.0.
Entrants will reimagine scenes from classic Film4 productions in two minutes or less.
Film4.0 commissioning editor Anna Higgs will also head the judging panel.
The overall UK winner will receive mentoring from Film4.0 and a cash prize to develop their own original short film project.
Cornish said: “Scene Stealers is a great idea. What better way to celebrate Film4’s amazing output over the last thirty years and to find some equally amazing new talent for the years ahead. I’m excited to be part of it and can’t wait to see what kind of creativity is out there.”
The closing date for entries is July 31.
