Film Nation: Shorts is a competition that invites young people (aged 14-25) to make, and vote for, films celebrating the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Run in partnership with Panasonic, Film Nation: Shorts will introduce young people to film-making, support them in developing their talent, and give everyone who enters a chance to have their work screened around the UK. Winning films will be screened in front of the crowds in venues during the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London in 2012.
The competition is accompanied by a UK-wide programme of workshops to provide extra help to young people to begin making films; develop their skills and meet other people to share ideas and develop projects.
