… Which begs the question, what else could be shown in cinemas to pull in those punters? #getiton



  • The wonderful and vibrant Chapter Arts Centre of Cardiff (the UK’s most peaceful urban space), are looking for a Development Office to assist in their fundraising operations – you have to be awesome, obviously, but for more click here.


  • Consider yourself the next Philip French? Stop sniggering in the back there! Well, @edmfilmfest has confirmed the return of the Student Critics Jury. A brilliant initiative to support future film criticism, applications and further info can be found here.
  • @VMShorts is Britains biggest short film competition and is now open for submissions. Need I say more? How about, 30,000 in prize money?
  • The submission process is now open for Save Our Scripts mentioned a few weeks back as one to watch, this is an excellent opportunity to develop your project with expert producers and screenwriters.
  • I dont think there is a more contemporary short film contest: Firefox is asking filmmakers to submit short films about the power of the web. Should lead to some interesting films, and the prizes are pretty great.


  • @Film_London are running Cultivate: Inspiring Future Audiences, a UK-wide programme that aims to provide the necessary skills to develop film education programmes in cinemas and festivals pertinent, no?
  • Aged 18-25 and interested in/already are making documentaries? Well @FirstLightFund is working alongside The Grierson Trust to provide you with a wealth of invaluable info and experiences that will help you realise your aspirations. This really is a no-brainer.
  • @sheffdocfest, in partnership with @SkillsetSSC, present a training and networking opportunity aimed exclusively at documentary-makers in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland; a workshop designed to arm you with the skills and inside knowledge needed to make sense of todays reality of fractured funding models and internet-connected audiences. sounds good to me!
