‘Kirin First Cut’ Short Film Competition Announced
Are you a budding filmmaker? Then this could be for you…
Japanese beer Kirin Ichiban has launched its inaugural short film competition, which is open to both professionals and aspiring amateurs alike.
You don't need a big budget to enter, with the organisers looking for creativity in what ever format you shoot in, be it 35mm film or on a mobile phone.
Entries can be between one and ten minutes and use any of the following production techniques: live action, animation, narrative/experimental or documentary, with the only criteria being that your film should be based around the concept of ‘First Press’.
A shortlist of the four best film entries will be chosen by a panel of industry experts from the world of short film including the London Short Film Festival and award winning Short Film director Simon Ellis, and will be screened at the Kirin Ichiban Pop Up restaurant in East London in August 2011.
The overall winner will then be chosen from a shortlist by public vote and receive £3000 cash and the career boosting prize of having their film shown at a series of prestigious short film festivals in the Capital.
2nd place will receive £1000 cash, 3rd place will receive £500 cash and the final runner up will win a year’s supply of Kirin Ichiban beer.
