Short Film Screenplay Competition
We believe that great stories can come from anyone and anywhere, the only limit is your imagination. Submit your short screenplay and the winner will have their film produced by Digital Saint – Music, Media & Broadcasting.
With the success of our last short film ‘Maximus’ (www.maximusshortfilm.com) we are going to repeat the process by working with film professionals and students on the Level 4 Digital Film Production course at West Suffolk College. This opportunity is open to everyone.
