Random Acts Film Project

Have you got a creative idea? Could you make it into a film?

We are working in partnership with Calling the Shots and are looking for young people with brilliant ideas to produce a series of short films for Arts Council England and for potential inclusion in Random Acts, the arts series broadcast on Channel 4. Round 3 applications close on 22nd March – apply now!

If you’re aged 16-24 and currently live or study in the South West (check your region), you are eligible to apply and have a chance to become one of 72 successful young people whose ideas will go into production over the next three years.

Films are fully funded and you’ll have access to excellent training and development opportunities, including a Producer/Mentor and crew.

You do not have to have any filmmaking experience or be a filmmaker – you just need to have a great idea and a clear creative vision. Your idea can be based on absolutely anything – it could be a spoken word piece, an artwork, a music video, a dance, or a wild animation…

You could be an artist, a dancer, a writer or a poet – there are no limits or definitions as to who can apply. We want you to confront, surprise and challenge us with your short film idea. Completed films will need to be between 90 seconds and three minutes long, so bear this in mind when applying.

The main thing we’re looking for is bold, brilliant ideas that can be turned into a film, KWMC and Calling the shots will help you do the rest.

  • Applications for round 3 are now open and close on 22nd March 2016.
  • All other dates for round 3 are to be confirmed, as are dates for all future rounds.

This project will be running until 2018. Please check back for updates.
