The Performance Short Film Competition is back!

By Michael Wood
Head of Performance
Performance Short Film Competition

The team at Performance, are very proud to announce the launch of our second Short Film Competition; the aptly named “Performance Short Film Competition…2019”

For those that took part in last year’s competition will already know the set-up but for those that don’t here’s what you need to know:

  • Your film must have been produced within the last two years
  • Have a maximum running time of 15 minutes
  • Entries are open from 10/06/2019
  • The closing submission date is 15/09/2019
  • You can submit your film here
  • That’s it!

The competition is now national! As a result, we will be welcoming submissions from all over the UK. All shortlisted films will be invited to our exclusive finale event in London, held once again at the Aviva Digital Garage in Hoxton, London. The winning films will be screened to a range of our industry partners and fellow filmmakers and will receive their prize packages! – more info to follow so keep your eyes peeled…

We have also have a number of generous companies who have agreed to support our competition and provide prizes including; Reviewed & Cleared, New Day Pictures, Promotion . A big thank you must go to these companies!

Over the years we have supported the Film Industry in a number of ways with a particular focus on emerging talent.

This support has played a part, however small, in developing a whole host of filmmakers. There is nothing more rewarding for us than watching people develop and enjoy success as their career unfolds, whatever industry they may work in! We are hoping that this competition and the prizes will support a few filmmakers in putting together their next project – something which will be great to be a part of!

As we launch this competition we are already thinking about what else we can do to support Production in the UK so if you have any ideas or if you’re reading this and run an organisation that supports emerging talent in the Production sector and want to understand how we may be able to work together with you to support the emerging talent you represent – please do feel free to get in touch at michael.wood@performance-insurance.tv
