Brexit Storytelling Challenge

Turn your idea into reality and win a place on a Met Film course !

 Congratulations to our winners:

  • Met Film School – Andrés González Seara “So what now?”
  • Storyteller outside of Met Film School – Alex Dewing “A Silent Voice”

We will be in touch with you soon!

To whatever degree you are happy or sad about the outcome of the Brexit referendum, there is one thing that is incontrovertibly true – which is that Britain has wandered into unchartered waters.

Rather than dwell on this, we’d like to do something proactive and do what Met Film does best – make great content.

So we’ve decided to set ourselves, our alumni, students and prospective students a challenge… a Brexit Storytelling Competition!

The Competition

We want you to create fun, thoughtful or challenging content about Brexit. Your pitch could be in the form of a script, PowerPoint presentation, video pitch or something else.

We will choose the most interesting and original idea and will help you to bring it to life as a 1-2 minute video with a production budget of up to £2500.

It could be a message of hope or it could be satire. It could even be both.

Video storytelling has the power to challenge perspectives and to help society move on. Whether it’s by commenting on what’s happened, drawing attention to something inspiring that is happening, or telling a story that is inspired by your perspective, we are looking for aspirational and inspirational content.

All power to you, storytellers!
