Filmmakers who enter must not have completed a feature-length film previously and films should be no longer than 30 minutes.
Films on all themes and of all genres (including fiction, documentary, animation and experimental work) completed in 2012 or after can be entered. The aim of the Africa in Motion Short Film Competition is to nurture and support young and new filmmakers from all over the continent, in the knowledge that making films can be a real challenge and with hope that the prize will be invested in future projects by the filmmaker.
A shortlist from all the entries will be announced in August 2014. A high profile jury of local and international film specialists and established African filmmakers will choose the competition winner, to be announced during this year's festival.
Applications should be submitted no later than Monday, 30 June 2014. For more, go to www.africa-in-motion.org.uk.
