If you are looking for something to do whilst in lockdown, why not make a short film up of to 5 minutes. The rules are simple:

  • It must be filmed at home (inside or in your garden)
  • You must live in Bridgwater (or within a 5 mile radius)
  • The film can be of any genre, though we really don’t want to see those home videos
  • Any video or audio used must be licensed to you or you have permission to use it (check out www.audiojungle.net for low-cost licensed audio)

The top 10 films, as judged by us at Bridgwater Magazine, will be shown at the upcoming Bridgwater Community Film Festival among films from around the world, a film festival that has no date other than as soon as we can all get together again, and will be free entry.

There are currently 2 prizes, donated by Dave’s Family Butchers in The Cornhill:

1x £10 voucher
1x £20 voucher

If you run a business and want to offer a prize, you can get in touch with us.

To enter, please upload your film to Youtube or Vimeo (or any other video service) and send us the link by selecting general contact and we will be in touch.

For inspiration, why not take a look at this film, 5 O’Clock, by Zach Paul Hammill. He is unable to enter the contest as he lives a little further than the 5 mile radius (Los Angeles), but you can watch another of his films at the Bridgwater Community Film Festival.
