The College Filmmaking Challenge is a competition for AS/A2 and BTEC Level 3 students to produce a short film meeting 3 simple criteria. Given just the title and a line of dialogue students are challenged to make a film up to 4 minutes in length – but beyond that creative freedom is theirs! The films will be judged, screened and awarded prizes during Southampton Film Week 2019.
Here is the criteria for this year’s challenge:
All Students taking part must submit their finished film to their college film/media department by 27th September 2019. Film production can take place within the college timetable, school holidays or in students’ own time.
Previous participants in this competition have gone on to study film & media at University or work in the film industry; some have created their own film production companies.
I found the College Filmmaking Challenge was a great opportunity to challenge myself and my creativity. I would highly recommend it to any budding filmmakers!Arianne Lopez Wyld,

The challenge is a great way for students to work together as a team, be creative with the criteria and get to see their films on a big screen during Southampton Film Week.
