Short Film Scripts, Northern Film School
Enter our short film competition to get your film made. 16 scripts will be selected for production by a panel of students, tutors and industry personnel, and one script will also be selected for a Special Merit Award, and awarded £100 worth of Amazon vouchers.
We want film scripts that are interesting and challenging in nature but simple to make. Your scripts can be on any subject or theme and we are looking for compelling storytelling that adheres to the following criteria:
• 3 minutes in duration
• Have a maximum of 4 characters
• Are set in a maximum of 2 locations or 1 set
• Have locations that can be found within the Yorkshire region
• Do not contain visual effects unless very minumal and simple to achieve
If your script is chosen you will need to consent to a programme of script editing to ensure it will work effectively for production. The winning films will be made in the 2016/17 academic year. You will be invited to the screening and will receive a credit on the film.
Feedback on scripts will be offered dependent on the volume of submissions and will be provided by supervised students during undergraduate study in the 2016/17 year.
The closing date for all entries is the 1st April 2016.
Please submit a copy of your script by email to:
Please write 3 MIN SCRIPT COMP in the subject header of the email. All scripts should be correctly formatted and clearly written. Please write your name and contact details on the script cover page only so that it can be removed for anonymous selection of films.
