Documentary

We want you to make a short documentary about a subject of your choice. That is it! Entirely your choice. The only condition is that it must include a ‘signature’ in the form of the words “NORTHERN & GREAT” somewhere in the film. They can be written, spoken or otherwise and they do not need to appear together, nor do they need to form a part of any story, but both need to be ‘in there’ somewhere. You can shoot ANY format on ANY device… even if it is shot on a mobile phone.

Fiction

Could you tell a story in one minute? We want you to make a short film that does just that. It could be about absolutely anything, funny, scary, thrilling, puzzling. It is entirely your choice. The only condition is that it must include a ‘signature’ in the form of the words “NORTHERN & GREAT” somewhere in the film. They can be written, spoken or otherwise and they do not need to appear together, nor do they need to form a part of any story, but both need to be ‘in there’ somewhere. We are looking for a compelling story, so it is about your content, rather than your equipment. Submissions must not exceed a running time of 1 minute.
