Cash prize on offer for student film-makers
PUBLISHED: 10:56 09 December 2017
Young film-makers in the Weston areas are being invited to submit their work to be viewed at an international festival – and could even win a cash prize.
Students on the film production degree course at University Centre Weston have put up a £200 prize to encourage budding directors to come forward.
Students up to the age of 18 are eligible to submit work for the Dirigo international student film festival, which has been organised and curated by Weston students since 2014.
Festival director Clay Sandford said: “We get entries from all over the world but also felt it was important to highlight the talent that we have closer to home.
“As well as the prize money, the winning film will be screened to the public as part of the festival.”
The event takes place at the Arnolfini in Bristol on January 23, and films can be submitted at Filmfreeway/dirigo until January 3.
