Kirin First Cut Short Film Competition

Posted on 14 June 2011

WIN £3000 CASH and your film shown at the London Short Film Festival.
The inaugural Kirin First Cut Short Film Competition is about celebrating the CRAFTSMANSHIP of short film and the variety of methods now used to create them.

We are looking for budding short film makers from students, aspiring amateurs through to professionals, to submit your finest work, whether created on 35mm film or a mobile phone edited using the latest app. The only criteria are that any films entered are based around the concept of “FIRST PRESS”, our unique brewing process.

A shortlist of the four best films will be chosen by a panel which includes industry experts from the London Short Film Festival and award winning Shorts director Simon Ellis. The four shortlisted films will be screened at our week long pop-up Japanese restaurant in East London, for more details, click here

2nd place will receive £1000.

3rd place will receive £500.

The final runner up will win a year’s supply of Kirin Ichiban beer.
