Here’s a unique opportunity for you to have your 5 minute (or less) film play in a high profile Olympic event.
The Hansel of Film 2012 will comprise a collection of films chosen from regional entries and played to regional audiences – right across the UK – and here’s the catchy part: the films will be transported between the 21 or so participating venues in much the same way as the Olympic torch travels from Beijing to London.
This event is part of the Cultural Olympiad – the UK’s opportunity to celebrate its cultural repertoire alongside the planet’s biggest sporting event – the Olympics…aka, London2012.
And one of our own venues in the north east, Woodend Barn in Banchory, is acting as a host venue.
So, what do you have to do?
It’s pretty easy, really…rake out that short film you made or make one specially, and submit it. Closing date is 18th May, 2012….plenty of time!!!!

Listen to this Monday’s podcast with Kathy Hubbard, Head of Development, Shetland Arts, to find out more.
Remember, only a few will be chosen for the festival, but let’s see some North East talent for a change.
NOTE: North East filmmakers Noble Brothers Productions have already entered a film, My Dear Love. Visit the site to see it.
