Cinemagic Young Filmmaker Competition

Enter your 'imaginative and original' short film to the Cinemagic Belfast Festival

Cinemagic is looking for imaginative and original films made by young people to be screened as part of Cinemagic Young Filmmaker 2013. The films can be about anything at all, fact or fiction, comedy or drama, news programme or documentary, and should be no more than ten minutes in length.

Cinemagic Young Filmmaker 2013 will take place during the Coca-Cola Cinemagic Belfast Festival in November 2013. The event will showcase the best short film entries of the year, and Cinemagic will also be producing a series of workshops and masterclasses with renowned members of the film and TV industry.

A digital filmmaking prize will be awarded for the best film in each age and genre category. The winning films will also be championed by Cinemagic and sent into other film competitions around the world.

Cinemagic, funded by Northern Ireland Screen supported by the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure, is an award-winning organisation that uses the magic of film and all forms of moving image to entertain, educate, motivate and inspire young people.

Established in 1989, Cinemagic has developed a worldwide reputation for excellence in children’s programming, and is currently the largest film event of its kind for young people in Ireland and the UK.

To enter the Cinemagic Young Filmmaker 2013 competition, simply send a DVD copy of your film with a completed entry form to the Cinemagic office at 49 Botanic Avenue, Belfast, BT7 1JL.

The deadline for submissions is October 25, 2013. Entry forms and rules/regulations are available to download from the Cinemagic website.
