Did you know once you’ve taken part in our #SetReady course you have access to a top aftercare team who’ll help to find you roles and jobs within the film and screen industry? As well as this, you can also team up with other members to enter our £1K Challenge!

What’s the £1K Challenge?

Our £1K Challenge is all about encouraging collaboration and enabling our members to get busy making films!

To do this, at points throughout the year, we ask for film submissions which are then judged on the following criteria:

  1. Quality of narrative
  2. Dialogue,
  3. Originality,
  4. Creativity,
  5. Coherence

The winner gets £1,000 to spend on things like locations, equipment and props to help bring their short film to life!

Words From a Winner!

Lara Cooper-Chadwick won our most recent £1K Challenge for her film ‘Belongings’. Below, Lara talks to us about her ideas and inspirations for the film!


We can’t wait to see the final cut!

Our £1K Challenge is only available to members who have completed our #SetReady course – Find out how to take part HERE!
