Film 4 is launching Scene Stealers, a creative talent search launched under its innovation banner Film4.0.
The project invites aspiring filmmakers to recreate iconic moments from Film4’s 30-year film history in two minutes or under.
The best entries will be judged by a panel of established directors and industry professionals with Film4.0 commissioning editor Anna Higgs.
The UK winner will receive mentoring from Film4.0, a cash prize to develop their own original short film project and have their short films broadcast on the Film4 channel.
Anna Higgs, commissioning editor for Film4.0, said: “Film4.0 is all about innovation, whether it’s finding new ways of making films with established filmmakers, or discovering brand new creative pioneers. We devised Scene Stealers as a brilliant and fun way to combine both elements – using Film4’s rich heritage as a springboard to inspire undiscovered talent and original ways of storytelling.
“My advice to entrants? Be bold, be original, be distinctive. Take an iconic moment and give it your own special spin. We really want to find our future cinematic storytellers, so show us what you’ve got!” continued Higgs.
