CBBC kicks off film initiative with Bafta

MUMBAI: BBC, in association with British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), has launched a new initiative to inspire and enable children to make their own films.

To be a part of this initiative, CBBC Me and My Movie, children need to submit their own two-minute films.

The competition is being launched through the show Blue Peter throughout this month.

The deadline for the competition is 6 October ‘08, after which four nominees will be invited to attend BAFTA‘s children awards ceremony, to be held in London on 30 November.

The CBBC Me and My Movie website provides an original 3D online space where children can upload their film entries, download a free film-making resource pack, access copyright free music clips. They can also have an experience of editing, using the special me and my movie mash-up tool.

CBBC controller Anne Gilchrist said, "This is the perfect opportunity for budding film makers to try their hand at creative storytelling. Last year‘s competition unearthed some real talent; I can‘t wait to see what the CBBC audience comes up with this time. This initiative should keep every adult film maker on their toes."

Bafta‘s Children‘s committee chairman Julian Scott added,"Bafta is delighted and proud to be part of this highly creative and empowering initiative. It shows children that if they have a bit of imagination they can tell their own stories in their own way and we are thrilled that so many of our members have volunteered to act as mentors and provide support, guidance and advice."
