Calling all film-makers: Virgin Media Shorts – the U.K.’s biggest short film competition – is looking for you.

Aiming to support and showcase the work of young film-makers from across the country, the competition helps to discover exciting new talent.

The top prize is £30,000 (!!!) funding and a year’s worth of mentoring from BFI; 13 shortlisted films will also be shown on-screen in cinemas across the country throughout the year. There is a third prize category, too; the winner of the People’s Choice Award will receive mentoring from the BFI as well as £5,000 of funding.
