East Anglian Film Archive Launches Mash-up Competition

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the East Anglian Film Archive (EAFA) has launched a new mash-up competition, open to individuals, school and film clubs. The film archive, which is operated by the University of East Anglia, was the first regional film archive in the UK and its vault contains over 120 years of historical film and television footage.

The competition, which aims to keep the region's history alive, encourages aspiring filmmakers to make a short film around 1 to 5 minutes in length, including 50% archive footage from the EAFA's current collection. Emphasis will be placed on creativity and imagination when incorporating the archive footage, as well as the competition's theme, which is "Today's the Day".

There are two categories being judged - 'Over 18' and 'Under 18', with a cash prize of £250. Additionally, a copy of the film will be kept in the EAFA collection as well as being screened at the Norwich Film Festival. The closing date for the competition is Friday 1st of September, 2017.
