All shortlisted submissions will be screened in front of a panel of industry experts and investors. They will then choose five outstanding shorts to be considered alongside our other finalists from Cannes, Berlin and Marbella for the grand prize of £1 million (including a years marketing, sales and distribution support). The overall winner will be announced in Berlin early next year.
Previous contestants have consistently commented on the unique networking opportunities and exposure to investors that our showcases provide, as well as the characteristically engaging atmosphere we strive to create for our contestants.
Our goal is for the London showcase to feature an abundance of similarly well made, thought-provoking and entertaining works by up-and-coming filmmakers. Consequently, we will be offering those filmmakers who we have contacted directly a 30% discount from the submission fees.
As another of our other primary commitments is to promote opportunity within the British film industry more broadly, we also believe that your taking part in our showcase, irrespective of the final result, will be worthwhile as you and your colleagues will be able to showcase your talent, network with other industry professionals and gain further exposure, all of which can only be to your benefit and the wider benefit of the filmmaking community..
Dennis is probably the last generation to be taught traditional editing skills. Splicing bits of film together with a blade and sticky tape seems archaic now, but this was the perfect grounding for his adventure in storytelling.
He created an online platform for filmmakers to sell their short films online – this was pre-iPhone – and has talked at international film festivals including Cannes about growing your audience and online distribution.
His work in the Film & TV industry spans nearly 30 years, working for the major UK broadcasters, creating documentary and lifestyle programmes for cable channels in Europe and USA, as well as working on many short films and independent dramas.
He’s also worked with many music artists – with projects that include Public Enemy, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Marleys, J-Lo and Common.
Plus, he’s created branded entertainment for the likes of Diesel, L’Oréal and Red Bull.
He wrote and self published an ebook called “Online Video Success Toolkit” and has helped many companies with their online video strategy.
He passes on his knowledge and experience by teaching and training the next generation of filmmakers. He’s taught well over 1000 people how to tell stories, edit and make films.
He’s post-production module leader at an international film school, as well as a visiting lecturer at other film schools and universities in London.
Through his company, Audience Magnet, Dennis has created a tool to enable solo business owners and small businesses to use the power of storytelling to connect to their ideal audience, and sell their products and services.
Katie has worked as Post-Production Supervisor on various films and TV series. Her latest film is Blinded By The Light, directed by Gurinder Chada, a movie that was picked up in Sundance after a bidding war between studios.
Her other credits include: Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, Good Bye Christopher Robin, Breathe, Abosultely Fabulous: The Movie
