    OSCAR & BAFTA WINNING DIRECTOR
    LAUNCHES 4TH ANNUAL MOBILE PHONE FILM COMPETITION

    Kevin Macdonald, the celebrated director of the critically acclaimed, award winning documentary Touching the Void is today launching the 4TH Nokia Shorts Film competition. Innovated by Raindance this joint venture between Nokia and Raindance Film Festival is groundbreaking.

    The Nokia Shorts Film Competition challenges budding filmmakers to create an original film concept and tell the story in just 15 seconds. Launched in 2003, this is the first competition of its kind to encourage the development of short films designed specifically to be played on mobile devices. This year, once again, Nokia Shorts will include a separate category for films made and edited entirely on a mobile handset.

    The winner of the competition will be announced at the British Independent Film Awards in November, and their short will be screened at the event in front of some of the industry’s biggest names. The winner of the handset only category will be announced at the Raindance Film Festival in September and will receive an all expenses paid trip to Cannes Film Festival.

    Starting today filmmakers can submit their 15-second ‘micro-movies’. Visit http://www.nokiashorts.co.uk for full entry requirements. The deadline for all submissions is the 11th of September.
