As you should know we screen short films at pretty much every Writer’s Block show we have. We’re big advocates, simply because so much can be conveyed and represented in a well produced short. We’ve seen everything from bloody thrillers, to wistful dramas, abstract animations and side-splitting silent movies. While the written and spoken word holds great power, the lasting effect of visual imagery means that it’s often a more tangible art form.
►The Media Trust and Channel 4 have teamed up to give 16-24 year old filmmakers or aspiring videographers the chance to have their film professionally made for broadcast on a community channel and showcased at a special screening event in London.
►The competition is a celebration of Black History Month, which is in October.
