The Centre for Journalism movie challenge invites you make a short film of no more than 3’00" duration. The subject: a student’s-eye view of life in the Centre. We don’t want the details of the degree. We don’t want anything dull, technical or bureaucratic. We want your best depiction of the stuff that makes the Centre’s students unique. What makes studying here fun? What do journalism students do when you are not studying?  Where do you live? What do you eat and drink? Where do you dance, play sport or just relax? We want you to sell the student experience in the Centre for Journalism as colourfully and entertainingly as you can. We’ll use the best films to market and recruit students. So, apart from money (see below) and our undying gratitude, what’s in it for you? Well, it could be the prelude to your first BAFTA, perhaps even the launch of an Oscar-winning career.  We have heard (well, OK, invented) rumours that Vanessa Paradis and Jonny Depp are demanding that their agents secure parts for them.

What are the prizes? We thought you might ask:

The winning student or team will win a cash prize of £500. The runners up will win a cash prize of £150.

Deadline is twelve noon on Friday 13 June 2014. No ifs or buts; if it isn’t in by deadline then it isn’t eligible for the prizes.

Equipment may be borrowed from the Centre in the usual way – subject to availability, of course.


 Interested? Talk to Ian or Tim.
