Could you write, shoot and edit a 90-second film inspired by North by Northwest – in just one month?
We’re delighted that our Director, Carolyn Hassan, has been invited to judge a short-film challenge commemorating the cinematic work of Cary Grant.
The Cary Comes Home festival takes places on 11th-12th October 2014 and celebrates internationally renowned film star Cary Grant – who was born Archie Leach in our very own city of Bristol. The festival includes film screenings, talks, and a film challenge.
The challenge is free to enter and entries are accepted from 1st September until the deadline of Friday 3rd October 2014, 5pm. Films must be must be under 90 seconds and include at least one of the following: a suit, a classic quote from North by Northwest, a compass, a field, a train, sunglasses, matches.
Shortlisted films will be featured on the festival website and shown on The Big Screen At-Bristol Millennium Square, opposite the Cary Grant statue, over the festival weekend. Winning films will be screened before the red carpet gala screening of North by Northwest at the Bristol Hippodrome on Sunday 12th October.
The films will be judged by a panel including:
