Bahrain short film competition launched

You could get the chance to bring your script to life

Bahrain short film competition launched

If you’re an aspiring filmmaker trying to make it big, then we have just the competition for you.

The French embassy in Bahrain has launched a new contest that will see talented filmmakers submit their film ideas to be in with a chance of attending a screenwriting workshop, or even filming and screening their own short movie.

All you need to do is submit your movie synopsis here before April 4 to be in with a chance of winning.

Between six and ten entrants will make it through to the next round, where they will attend a screenwriting workshop hosted by experts Marianne Mayer and Mohammed Fakhro.

After this, one script will be picked and filmed in partnership with the Bahrain-based production company Blu Steel Films.

The short film will then be shown at the Alliance Française of Bahrain and at the Bahrain Cinema Club.
