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 so they must, in the opinion of the student’s own college and SFW organisers, be suitable for a public screening.
All students taking part must submit their finished film to their college film/media department by Friday 27th September 2019. Each participating college will then choose up to 3 films to be screened during Southampton Film Week 2019. If you are a student who would like to take part please check with your college film or media department before contacting City Eye. If you are a teacher who would like your students to participate or for any other enquiries please Contact Us.
The College Filmmaking Challenge, previously known as the Wessex Colleges Filmmaking Challenge has produced some incredible short films over a number of years and inspired young filmmakers to continue their filmmaking careers, many through university, into the industry. Students from regional colleges such as Ringwood School, St.Vincent’s College, Barton Peveril Sixth Form and Farnborough College have all taken home prizes in recent years.
