TriForce Short Film Festival and INTO Film Team Up

16-19-year-old filmmakers are being offered the chance to pitch for funding and support to make a ‘microshort’ on their mobile phone, with 4 winning films screened at BAFTA as part of the annual TriForce Short Film Festival.

TriForce Short Film Festival and INTO Film, are teaming up to offer 16-19 year olds the opportunity to pitch an idea for a microshort film (2-5 minutes long), shot on a mobile phone. 4 winning teams of two will be selected to take part in a mobile phone making workshop and will receive production funding to complete their projects of £250 each. They’ll also be offered support and expert help from INTO Film and TriForce Creative Network.

All 4 completed films will then be showcased at BAFTA at a public screening, as part of the TriForce Short Film Festival on 1st December 2018, with the young filmmakers invited to attend and speak on a seminar panel about the process.

Paul Reeve, CEO, INTO Film said, “We’re very excited to be working with TriForce Short Film Festival on this project. It gives us a great opportunity to engage with more young filmmaking talent and support them to get their ideas made and then screened at BAFTA”.


Minnie Ayres, Creative Director of the TriForce Short Film Festival said, “It makes perfect sense for INTO Film and TriForce to work together – we’re all about increasing access and inclusion in the film and TV industry and INTO Film work with a huge range of children and young people across the UK, getting them into film at an early age. We want the young people taking part in the competition to realise that working in the film industry is possible, no matter where you come from. We can’t wait to see the ideas that come through!”

Budding filmmakers will be asked to write one page of A4 outlining their idea for a microshort film. The Micro Pitch competition will be open for submissions between 9th – 27th July. For more details and to apply, go to
