  • British-Council-Film-CollectionBritish Council Film has launched a short film competition to mark the release of another tranche of fascinating 1940s documentaries from its archive.

    Entitled View From Here this international filmmaking competition invites entrants to plunder the British Council Film Collection to make their own short film. Films are to be no longer than 3 minutes and the deadline for entries is Friday 18 July 2014. There’s a schools competition (with two sections, ages 5 to 11 or 12 to 18) and a General Public competition open to any age.

    The judging panel includes Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin MacDonald, Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha, and presenters Claudia Winkleman and Edith Bowman.

    Entries will be showcased on the British Council’s website and prizes range from a guided tour of Pinewood Studios, a visit for your whole class to the Harry Potter Experience, Gala Tickets for the London Film Festival and tea with one of our celebrity judges.
    The British Council suggest that you could

    add a new soundtrack or voiceover to one of the existing films
    insert your own new pictures using either still photos or moving image
    crowd-source a new version of one of the films with images collected from your friends
    go back to the site or subject of one of the films and re-make it using updated images, sound or other techniques
    find a subject in the films choosing from hospitals, schools, train stations, newsrooms and factories to iconic buildings, institutions and traditions – and make a parallel film from a similar location in your own town or country
    or simply imagine what themes the Collection might cover if we were trying to commission films like this now in order to give an image of the UK, at home, at work, at play to the rest of the world.
