The best six entries will be screened together, at the Hyde Park Picture House, on Sunday 4th October, watched by an audience and judging panel of industry experts who will decide the winning entry. This film will then be considered for entry into the Leeds Film Festival and LOCO Comedy Festival, as well as screened again at the Hyde Park Picture House before their special anniversary screening of CLUELESS.
The competition is open to all filmmakers based in Yorkshire, who have created their shorts within the last 3 years. Films can be any length upto 15 minutes, and need to be uploaded to YouTube, before you email us the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:

Remember, what we are looking for is exciting, original, independent talent in Yorkshire. Use this opportunity to work together with other creatives – remember, filmmaking is all about collaboration!
