Now in its 5th year, The Chris Anderson Award for Best Young Filmmakers is aiming to encourage and support emerging talent in North East England, Scottish Borders and South East Scotland.

Young filmmakers (aged 19 and under) can enter the competition through submitting their short films. Applications are welcome from individual filmmakers, schools, youth projects and organisations from the North East of England, Scottish Borders and South East Scotland. From the submissions, approximately 10 films will be nominated by a jury of professional filmmakers and artists, which will then be entered into the competition to win The Chris Anderson Award and a £200 cash prize that could contribute towards future production costs.

The selected films will be screened at The Maltings Theatre & Cinema as part of the 9th edition of Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, which takes place between Wed 25 – Sun 29 September 2013. The winner of the award will also be announced during the event. This is an amazing opportunity for young filmmakers to exhibit in a wonderful historic location, gain more exposure and a kickstart in the financial support of their next project.

The award was made possible through the kind contributions of the family of late Chris Anderson, who was an active supporter of Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival and of young filmmakers.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 30 July 2013, 1pm. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their submission by Tuesday 13 August.
