Be discovered by Red Rock Entertainment with their £5,000 film Competition

Red Rock Entertainment is offering emerging talented film makers a unique opportunity to win £5,000 towards creating their own short film.

The Competition will be held Monday the 22nd of February at the distinguished Century Club in London.

The panel of judges will consist of illustrious film executives from Red Rock Entertainment, Elstree Studios and associates within the professional film industry:

  • Phillip Ilson: director of the London Short Film Festival, shorts programmer for the BFI London Film Festival

  • Roger Morris: managing director of Elstree Studios

  • Stephen Cookson: award-winning writer and director

  • Linda Robson: Actress is best known for 'Birds of a Feather' and 'Loose Women'

  • Gary Collins: managing director of Red Rock Entertainment


The competition comes in conjunction with Century Club, which has a longstanding history with the creative industry, being an exclusive members club in the heart of Soho with many leading film writers, directors and actors amongst its membership. The short film writing competition aims to give some of the brightest UK writers and directors the chance to land a £5,000 budget to make their film. Scripts will be judged by a panel of film industry experts who are looking for innovative and creative ideas which can be realised for £5,000 or less.

The maximum length of the short script is 15 pages (for 15 minute duration).

Each short film script submission must also contain a budget breakdown. Unlike other short film competitions, this one is completely free to enter.

Supporting Vimeo links & MP4 formats of mood boards for visual and narrative influences are also accepted.

Deadline for script submissions 31st January 2016 at 18:00, and should be sent tosubmissions@redrockentertainment.com.

Five entries will be selected to pitch their project in front of a panel on the evening of Monday 22nd February 2016 at 7pm.

Alongside these pitches on the 22nd, Century Club will be hosting a Red Carpet Event where they will be screening short films made by Century Club members and a screening  of Titiro directed and written by Chelsea Grant.

Gary Collins said: “We’re delighted to run this competition which will help to support UK filmmaking talent. We’re looking forward to seeing the entries and we’re keen to back a great short film project with an innovative approach. Red Rock Entertainment supports investment in the UK film industry and we want to ensure young talent benefits from investment also.”
