How to apply

How to apply

The application for entries is now live. Submit a film you’ve made which you think best demonstrates your skillset as a filmmaker. (Don’t worry if the film isn’t highly polished – it’s your voice and potential we’re most interested in.) The film should be independently funded and under a minute long, or a short excerpt. You can submit music videos, social media clips, documentaries – anything that shows off your creative flair. (And please list all your production skills, including offline and online editing, as the more strings to your bow the better.)

Submit your film through the form that appears when you click “Apply now” below. When you upload your film to YouTube or Vimeo please include #filmlabstalent and then send us the url through the form. You’re very welcome to enter again, even if you’ve entered Film Labs before, just make sure that you reapply with a new piece of work. Entries close at midnight on the 30th of November, 2018.

We’ll be in touch with all applicants by the 5th of December, 2018 to let you know if you’ve been shortlisted and we’ll be holding interviews during the week commencing 10th of December, 2018 so we can have a chat, get to know you a bit better, and talk through your work.

The start date for the successful applicant will be the 7th of January, 2019 (hopefully it’ll be a nice distraction from the usual new year fat-and-broke feeling) and entrants must be 18 or over.
