Childnet Film Competition

Childnet has launched its ninth annual Film Competition. The competition challenges young people aged 7-18 years to create short films to inspire their peers to ‘Connect with Respect’.

The competition aims to encourage young people to have respectful interactions online and gives young people the opportunity to harness their creativity and share their understanding of online safety issues.

All films must showcase positive and inspiring use of the internet and clearly reflect this year's theme which is how young people can ‘connect with respect’ and work together to make the better place for children and young people. 7-11 year olds are invited to create a 60 second film, while 11-18 year olds are invited to create a 2 minute film.

Delivered as part of its work as one of three charities in the UK Safer Internet Centre, Childnet offers resource packs for schools and youth organisations to support young people in making their films, including storyboard templates, guides to filmmaking and other useful documents.

Entries must be submitted by 11 June 2018.

Judged by a panel of experts from the BBC, BAFTA, BBFC and BFI, the shortlisted films will be shown on the big screen in front of industry guests and young people at the Childnet Film Competition 2018 Event at the BFI London Southbank and will also receive a BBFC rating. The Film Competition winners will each receive a filmmaking kit for their school which includes a Canon DSLR camera, tripod and clapperboard.
