To celebrate the launch of Light the Blue we are inviting young film-makers from across the region to submit short films to be screened at this year’s festival. The winner will be announced at the launch event on Monday 10th June and will receive a Light the Blue Festival Pass and a Light the Blue hoodie.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for short films, no longer than three minutes in any style or genre, from comedy, action or film noir to animation, music video or documentary and everything in between. If you can record it, you can submit it!

 How do I enter?

You must be aged 13-19 to enter. There must be no more than six participants in your group.

Please submit a completed application form along with your film (see below). Please note that we are unable to accept any entries that are not submitted with an application form.

What happens next?

Your film will be reviewed by our Creative Learning team who will select a shortlist. If your film is chosen, you will be invited to a launch event on Monday 10th June at which it will be screened and the winner announced.

We may also use your film to help promote the festival both on our website and via social media. We will not do this without notifying you.
