We’re pleased to support this year’s Our City competition, which opened for entries on 25 September with a launch at Encounters Short Film Festival.

Our City is a 90-second film competition for new talent supported by Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees, with a £1000 prize fund kindly donated by Aardman, Doghouse, Drummer TV, Films@59 and Icon Films.

Last year’s competition attracted more than 50 entries and this year we’re looking to make it bigger, so if you work with young talent, have people on work experience or want to contribute mentoring or support, this is for you!

Our City is part of the UNESCO City of Film, supported by the wider TV sector through RTS Bristol and community groups including Calling the Shots, Creative Youth Network, Knowle West Media Centre, Rife, Sharpshotz and Ujima Radio.

The Brief:
Produce a 90 second film, animation or motion video suitable for use on social media that captures your view of what makes Bristol THE place to be – creativity, culture, people, music, technology, action, collaboration or lifestyle. It can be documentary, drama, comedy, music – any form that shows off the city!

The Rules :
Your entry must be no more than 90 seconds long.
You can use any digital device – computer, phone or camera.
We welcome projects produced by a team, though the lead creatives – director, producer, writer or composer must be either under 30 years old, or a student.
You must own the copyright of all the content in your submission – including music.
It must be suitable for all audiences, with no “explicit content” requiring a disclaimer.
Your submission must be MP4 or Quicktime format.
All you have to do is upload your film and complete a simple entry form which can be downloaded from the Facebook page after 25th September
