Opportunity – Film Makers
“Secrets and Lies: What is Your Truth?”
“I don’t want to live in a world where everything that I say, everything I do, everyone I speak to, every expression of creativity or love or friendship, is recorded”. Edward Snowden
This year, Latitude Festival will be focusing its attentions on some vital political and societal issues that are both timely and timeless.
Living in Britain as we learn of the unprecedented mass surveillance being undertaken by the US and UK – learning vital truths, unravelling secrets and questioning what these mean for us, for society and for the future.
As part of this wide, creative exploration, Latitude Festival – in partnership with film Production Company Brass Moustache – will commission two short documentaries (maximum 10 minutes length) to premiere in the Film & Music Arena of the festival.
Film-makers, especially young or emerging film-makers, will be invited to submit 2 page treatments to the jury, comprised of multi-award winning film-makersCallum McCrae, Director of “No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka”; Sarah McCarthy, Director of “The Dark Matter of Love” and Mark Donne, Director of “The UK Gold” – who will shortlist & commission two short documentaries.
The two winning film-makers will each receive a production grant of £2.5k each and both receive on-going support & workshop assistance via the Brass Moustache studio in Central London.
The jury and winning film-makers will be joined at the festival by Catherine Bray of Film 4, who will introduce the premiere screenings of the two shorts and then host a debate and audience discussion on the themes connected to them.
Deadline 28th April
