The Arts and Humanities Research Council is launching its 2017 Film Awards to find new and emerging talent that straddle the worlds of both filmmaking and arts and humanities research.
This award is designed to showcase, reward and recognise the best of the growing number of high-quality short films (defined as no longer than 30 minutes) that are linked to arts and humanities research. For the third year running, there is also the “Inspiration Award” which is open to members of the public, provided their film has been inspired by research in the arts and humanities.
Awards will be made in five categories and the winner of each category will win £2,000 to be invested in their future filmmaking activities. All applicants must accompany their submissions with supporting text which must detail how the film is directly linked or influenced by arts and humanities research.
- Best Research Film of the Year
- Best Doctoral or Early Career Film
- International Development Award: Mobilising Global Voices
- Innovation Award
- Inspiration Award (public category)
The call for applications closes at 4pm on 6 July 2017
