Filmmakers aged between 16 and 19 are being offered the chance to pitch for funding and support to make a “microshort” film with a mobile phone.

Four winning films will be screened in December this year at the London headquarters of BAFTA – the British Film and Television Awards – as part of the annual TriForce short film festival.

Four teams of two will be selected to take part in a mobile phone filming workshop and will get £250 to complete their projects.

They will also be offered expert help from film education charity INTO Film and the TriForce Creative Network that aims to open doors to the film industry to people from all walks of life and to provide a way for the industry to discover diverse talent.

INTOFilm and Triforce logosPaul Reeve, CEO of INTO Film, said: “We’re very excited to be working with TriForce short film festival on this project. It gives us a great opportunity to engage with more young filmmaking talent and support them to get their ideas made and then screened at BAFTA”.

Minnie Ayres, creative director of TriForce said: “We’re all about increasing access and inclusion in the film and TV industry and INTO Film work with a huge range of children and young people across the UK, getting them into film at an early age.

“We want the young people taking part in the competition to realise that working in the film industry is possible, no matter where you come from.”

Budding filmmakers will be asked to write one page of A4 outlining their idea for a microshort (two to five minutes) film.

The micro pitch competition is open for submissions until 27 July.
