Danny Boyle’s SHUFFLE festival announces new film competition

By June 5, 2014 Entries

Are you an up-and-coming filmmaker? Ever wanted to get your film in front of Danny Boyle?

This is your chance…

In a world first, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker will not only judge SHUFFLE’S new short film competition, but will also give the winner a unique, exclusive insight into how he works. SHUFFLEs artistic director, Kate MacTiernan is Australian, and is encouraging submissions from Australian Filmmakers.

Beginning in summer 2013 to create awareness for the UK’s first urban Community Land Trust, SHUFFLE – a film, arts and music festival experience – takes place over five days, from July 31st to August 4th, in London’s most urban woodland (Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park).

SHUFFLE includes an innovative programme of events centred around Nature, Death and Survival. Together with films and live music, the event hosts a pop-up restaurant, a Banker’s Feast for over 500 guests,  plus art installations, two outdoor cinemas, guided tours and much, much more.

There are three categories to SHUFFLE’s inaugural short film competition:

1. Science and Imagination

2. The City

3. Young People (under 25 years of age)

Prizes include a ‘top secret’ trip to California to be part of the most cutting-edge filmmaking technology, a trip to New York for a once-in-a-lifetime filmmaking opportunity, extensive Panalux equipment hire and more are still to be announced.

Last year’s guests included Jarvis Cocker, Nic Roeg, Martin McDonagh, Julien Temple, Brian Cox, Tim Key, Underworld and Mark Kermode.

A full line-up announcement is due on June 9th.  Deadline for entries is July 11th.
