Co-operative Young Film-makers of the Year

How you got something to say? An idea for a great movie? An interesting documentary? Or an amusing comedy? Don’t keep it to yourself. Get together with some friends, share your thoughts and make a film or video. Every year, Co-operative Young Film-makers offers you the chance to see your work on the big screen. For over 30 years the Co-operative has organized a festival for young film-makers, proving how committed we are to young people and their films. We’ll be holding this year’s festival on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 October at the National Film Theater. We’re looking for young film-makers with imagination. Whether you’re already planning a career in the movies or have

never made a film in your life, it doesn’t matter. We want to see films and videos from people of all abilities and levels of experience.

NOW FOR OUR RULES AND SUGGESTIONS

You might be at school or college. Perhaps a member of a youth club or drama group. Maybe just a group of friends. The only thing we do say is that you have to be less than 21 years old in order to enter our competition. We want to show as many films as we can on the big screen – the briefer the films, the more we can show. You can say a lot in the six minutes or less that we suggest. Especially if you plan your film in advance and edit it well. You need to supply your own equipment – try borrowing from family and friends. Most types of film and video are acceptable. Just concentrate on getting the most out of your equipment. Experiment a bit! Think of an interesting storyline. It’ll help to make your work a bit different. We’re really keen to get films about the environment or international issues. Why not trying your own music? Every film and video we receive is looked at by our group of judges. They watch each one from start to finish, then tell

you what they think. This can really help if you are thinking about trying again in twelve months’ time. If your film is chosen for screening at the festival – and last year 50 were – you will get free entry to the festival, and we will cover any costs, such as your travel. The festival ends with a presentation on stage after your work is screened. Get in touch before your start filming and we’ll post you a full information pack. This will include a form to enter the competition and other details you need to consider. Don’t forget the competition closing date is Monday 11 May.

  • 1. This is the first Co-operative film-making competition for 30 years.

  • 2. You can enter the competition without any experience of film-making.

  • 3. The Co-operative prefers short films.

  • 4. The Co-operative will lend you whatever you require to make your film.

  • 5. The Co-operative suggests putting music in your film.

  • 6. The judges will watch the whole of every film entered.

  • 7. If you are 18 and enter the competition this year, you can still enter it next year.

  • 8. Films entered in the competition are all screened at the festival.

  • 9. The Co-operative pays for some people to attend the festival.

    • 10. Information packs will be available from 11 May.
