‘One Minute Movie Competition’ for 14-19 year olds

Glasgow Youth Film Festival 2011 has joined up with Chew TV again to launch our very successful ‘One Minute Movie Competition’.

The competition is open to anyone in Scotland aged 14 – 19 years old.

This year’s competition is specially themed – we’re looking for films under 60 seconds about the best kept secrets in your neighbourhood! The films can be about your favourite childhood memory, where your friends hang out every weekend or anything unique to where you live. The judges are looking for all types of creative and imaginative films: comedies, dramas, animations, documentaries.

The best filmmakers will be rewarded with special prizes! One of the prizes will be an Alienware laptop worth £800, kindly supplied by Muvizu for Best Individual film.

The winning entries will be announced at special ceremony during GYFF and the winners will also be invited to screen their films at The Arches.

The closing date for entries to be uploaded is Tuesday 1 February 2011 at 6pm.
