We’re super excited to announce that after receiving a record number of entries (over 500 from more than 30 countries!), the shortlisted films for DepicT! ‘11 are now all available for your viewing pleasure right here at depict.org.
These 14 tiny films have been selected for their ability to be hugely distinctive, imaginative and engaging. They are all in the running for the three prestigious prizes, which will be announced during the Encounters International Film Festival (Wed 16 – Sun 20 Nov). These include the main DepicT! prize of £1500, the British Special Mention Award and the Shooting People Audience Award.
The Shooting People Audience Award is where you come in – watch, vote, and comment on the shortlisted films online to help determine the winner!
The DepicT! ‘11 films will have their big screen premiere on Sat 19 Nov at 15:00 at the ever-popular DepicT! Showcase at Watershed, Bristol. The DepicT! showcase is always hugely popular: it gives everyone a chance to see the films in a cinema setting, meet the talent behind them and find out more about the competition. Tickets are on sale now so snap them up to see these super shorts in their full splendor!
Last but not least, if you are a young filmmaker aged 21 or under, or part of an organisation working with under 21s, we’re delighted to invite you to submit your films to Electric December, an online advent calendar showcasing shorts by new talent from all across Europe.
The deadline has been extended to Mon 24 Oct so if you want to submit your short film (this time five minutes or less!) head on over to electricdecember.org now.
