FILM makers in the Ribble Valley are being urged to enter a national competition by the area’s MP Nigel Evans.
He has called for local amateur film makers to enter “Film the House”, a national competition that celebrates up-and-coming amateur film producers, directors and script writers across the UK.
Film lovers of all ages are urged to get their creative juices flowing and submit their movies to Film the House. Mr Evans will nominate his top film from the area for the competition, which aims to celebrate film making talent and raise awareness of the importance of intellectual property rights, film and the creative industries.
Entries are welcome in all genres and styles and Nigel and his team look forward to reviewing them. Film the House gives entrants the chance to win a screening of their work to film industry executives at the House of Commons.
Speaking from Westminster, Mr Evans said: “Film the House is a great opportunity for aspiring film makers of any age looking to find a way into the industry. I am really excited to see what people in the Ribble Valley come up with and really hope that I get a wide range of films to review.
“I am confident we can see an entry from the Ribble Valley crowned as the winner of Film the House and, ultimately, get Ribble Valley talent showcased in front of industry experts.”
The closing date for nominations is June 30th and the winners will be announced on the October 30th at a reception and screening of the winning film at the Houses of Parliament. For information on how to apply visit www.filmthehouse.com
