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.”

HOW TO APPLY

  • Do you have an idea for a short film soundtracked by a Novo Amor song? Can you tell a meaningful story centred around the interaction between humanity and the environment in your community?
  • Pitch it! Once you have your idea, write a treatment for it in 500 words or less, or tell us about it in a 60 second video.

AWARD

  • All submissions will be reviewed by Novo Amor and 5 filmmakers will each receive £2,000 GBP to help them bring their idea to life.

CONDITIONS

  • Entries will close on Sunday 19 December 2021 at 11:59pm (GMT).
  • The chosen filmmakers will be notified by 8 January 2022.
