30 May – 14 June 2017
ATLAS is delighted to announce their annual open short film submission for all filmmakers in Skye and Lochalsh including young filmmakers. This year’s theme is food and the environment, and films should be broadly based on either or both of these areas. ATLAS invite films in either Gaelic (subtitled) or English and no longer than 30 minutes in duration. A maximum of six films will be selected and filmmakers will be invited to take part in an informal question and answer session at the screening on Wednesday 21 June.
Last year ATLAS had a great response with the selected films including ‘Dear Dad’ by Robin Haig, ‘A Bheil Thu Gam Thuigsinn | Every Argument’ by Suzy Lee and ‘Goneoffswimming’ by Calum Maclean.
Films can be any genre: documentary, comedy, drama, artist moving image, mobile short. We encourage young filmmakers to apply, including those of school age, as well emerging and established filmmakers.
Send your film via email or WeTransfer to Suzy Lee: firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Deadline for submission is 4.00pm, Wednesday 14 June.
