Factory’s Prime and Fire, the world’s leading action sports creative agency and publisher whose clients include Nike and O2, has teamed up with Talenthouse, the world’s platform for creative collaborations, and the BFI, to invite global film- and documentary-makers to submit a 1-2 minute pitch of a story about action, niche or specialist sports. A career boosting opportunity, prizes include substantial production budgets and a chance to showcase work at the BFI.
Alongside submitting a 1-2 minute pitch, entrants must also submit 300 words in writing. Judges are looking for unique; undiscovered human-interest stories and mini-documentaries based around action, endurance or specialist sports. The scope is huge and can be absolutely anything from wingsuit flying, dressage, falconry, fencing and skateboarding to stories of human sporting endeavour.
There will be 10 winners: nine filmmakers will receive a production budget of £2,000; the best film will receive a £10,000 production budget to make their story a reality, and all 10 will have their work screened at the BFI’s Future Film Festival in February 2015 – a significant boost to get their work seen by audiences and industry professionals.
Talenthouse’s global platform will ensure that Prime and Fire and the BFI are able to identify and connect with the best film- and documentary-makers from around the world by encouraging a global dialogue between filmmakers via social networks. This will give film- and documentary-makers an exceptional opportunity to have their work showcased and seen by audiences from all corners of the world.
The deadline for entries is 10am on 7 August 2014. To enter visit www.talenthouse.com.
The winner will be announced on 4 September 2014.
