Each month we premiere a short film on our Youtube channel and social media, the only rule being that it hasn't yet been posted online (private videos are okay). Dramas, docs, animations... all genres and styles are welcome.
The winner will receive a screening of the winning film at the BFI Future Film Labs (including a live Q&A). In addition to this great publicity, we'll publish and promote your video online.
A short film will be selected each month by the Hiive team. As long as your film hasn't been posted elsewhere online you can continue to re-submit.
