Open to young film-makers aged between 14 and 18 years old, the competition aims to bring together films and religion.
The Tony Blair Faith Foundation, set up by the former UK prime minister, has launched the second edition of its short film competition which aims to bring together films and religion.
The scheme, Faith Shorts 2011, is calling for film-makers aged between 14 and 18 years from anywhere in the world, to submit short films via YouTube, to demonstrate how they have been inspired by faith. Films will be accepted in three categories – family movies, action movies and musical movies.
In the interest of making the competition as accessible as possible, potential applicants can also apply to win a portable video camera if they don’t have access to film making equipment.
The panel will include Tony Blair, Hollywood stars Hugh Jackman and Jet Li, Bollywood star Anil Kapoor and former FOX studios President Sherry Lansing, with the winning films being premiered at BAFTA headquarters later this year.
The overall winner will be given the opportunity to make their short with a professional crew.
The deadline for entries is July 1, 2011. Click here to find out more.
