The ultimate Craghoppers Film Prize 2018 was up for grabs at October Discover Film Awards in London and entries were shortlisted for this coveted award from all entries from both festivals – no matter what genre – or who had entered.
4 EXCLUSIVE CASH PRIZES OF £34,000 WERE AWARDED
This initiative recognises emerging talent in short films across all genres. It is part of a longer term initiative for Craghoppers supporting filmmakers who may have traditionally been overlooked.
How? By offering one of the largest cash prizes of its kind and rewarding and encouraging exceptional filmmakers.
At the exciting Discover Film Awards which took place in London in April and October, the Craghoppers Film Prize formed the stage for recognising the incredible emerging talent within the short film community.
It encouraged the next generation of filmmakers to create thrilling new content for emerging digital platforms – from Netflix to Amazon, music videos to new forms of corporate branded content. This is a generation vital to the future of the global digital economy.
Craghoppers, working alongside Discover.film, aim to identify leaders in short filmmaking. And then reward them with major investment and prize money. Supporting the arts is an important strategic decision for the brand.
This bold new initiative will grow year on year, making the Craghoppers Film Prize one of the most coveted accolades within the international film community – associating the Craghoppers name with quality, innovation and creativity.
