KINOTEKA POLISH FILM FESTIVAL LAUNCHES FRANTIC FILMS: A SHORT FILM COMPETITION INSPIRED BY ROMAN POLANSKI
Kinoteka Polish Film Festival and the Polish Cultural Institute have just launched a new nationwide short filmmaking competition inspired by the films of cinematic great, Roman Polanski. So if you think you’ve got the next Chinatown in you, then this could be the opportunity for you! Granted, you probably won’t have the help of Faye Dunnaway and Jack Nicholson to give your film that extra something but don’t let that put you off. The creative challenge is wide open to all, regardless of previous film-making experience. As long as your film is no longer than 10 minutes, entrants can choose how to respond: be it homage or spoof, a retelling of a classic Polanski storyline, or an anti-narrative inspired by his images and ideas.
The deadline for submissions is 1 March and the shortlisted entries will be jury of film professionals who have worked with Polanski including Timothy Burrill (producer The Pianist, Oliver Twist), Jerry Skolimowski (scriptwriter Knife in the Water) and Pawel Edelman (DOP The Pianist, Carnage). To be in with a chance of winning the Best Film Award and £1000 worth of equipment, please visit the Kinoteka website for full terms and conditions as well as submission details.
