Singer-songwriter Novo Amor has introduced the ‘565 fund’. The fund and short film competition offers a chance for a young filmmaker access to a grant of £2,000 each to make their six-minute video. In essence, it will be five filmmakers, six minutes, across five countries.
The Short Film Competition is open worldwide and ends Sunday 19 December 2021 at 11:59pm (GMT).
Says the music artist:
“The fund is in place to help five young filmmakers make their own 6 minute video, which will be soundtracked by a piece of Novo Amor music.
The film should be about the interaction between humanity and the environment and you can interpret that however you want really.”
