1917 One Shot Short Film Contest
NBCUniversal and Ideas United have teamed up to produce a video submission contest targeting emerging filmmakers to promote Universal Pictures' thrilling new epic, 1917, from Oscar®-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes.
The film is set during the height of World War I and follows the story of two British soldiers, in real-time, on a seemingly impossible mission, in a race against the clock, to deliver a critical message to the frontlines. The contest challenges participants to submit a two-minute video filmed in one continuous shot, focused on the theme of delivering an urgent message.
Ideas United will manage the open call for emerging storytellers through its Campus Movie Fest participants and its global network of filmmakers, producers, and writers. To be considered, each participant must be 18 years or older and a U.S. resident. Contestants will have until December 2, 2019, to upload their two-minute video to Instagram, Facebook or YouTube using the hashtag, "#1917oneshotchallenge" and then upload the public link to 1917oneshotchallenge.com .
Ideas United will narrow submissions to the finalists, and 1917 filmmakers will select the ultimate winner. The winner and a guest will be flown to Los Angeles to attend the 1917 premiere on December 18, 2019.
David Roemer, co-founder and CEO, Ideas United, said "Ideas United has the unique opportunity to tap into a global network of talented filmmakers and creative thinkers. By partnering with Universal Pictures, we are able to challenge the next generation of creators with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will help them showcase their talents and give them a chance to meet some of the filmmakers and cast of 1917."
