Design in London: A Filmmaking Challenge

new post title

If you know a Londoner who you think would be an interesting subject for a short film with the theme of ‘design’, then we’d like to see your film. The brief is very open:The person can be a great designer or an assistant in a studio. It could be someone who commissions or sells designs. It could be a critic, a teacher or even someone who creates software or tools that enable people to develop designs.

And the person’s life can touch on any kind of design that we experience in the city – from interiors to cars, from fashion to products. They just have to identify themselves as a Londoner….

So, up to five submissions will be:

  • Published on, accompanied by a press and social media campaign
  • Screened during the London Design Festival (13-21 September 2014) at a special screening taking place on the 19th of September at the V&A museum, as part of their London-themed day of talks and events.
  • Published in other channels associated with the 1000 Londoners project, which currently includes screenings alongside feature films in two West End multiplex cinemas
  • Earmarked for distribution later in the project.

If you have an idea, just email your treatment here.

Please make sure to read the London Design Festival guidelines for terms and conditions as well as information on discounted equipment rental.  All films must be delivered by the 9th September 2014.
