AXA Real Estate / Vivid Digital

Vivid Digital is a competition, exhibition and commissioning programme devised and curated by Art Acumen, sponsored and hosted by Bevis Marks Development and supported by British Council Film and Arts Council. Bevis Marks Development sponsorship included a £1,200 for each category as well as technical consultation and PR and marketing support http://6bevismarks.com/?vivid-introduction.php

The Vivid Digital Art Programme attracted substantial interest from young and undiscovered film makers in the UK as well as globally, with entries as far afield as Australia, Thailand and the United States.

The submissions were judged on content (story, creativity, originality, coherence) and overall quality (overall impression, enjoyment, meaningfulness, replay value) by a judging panel made up of a number of prestigious names across the creative sector.

“Funding films – never mind getting potential film investors to look at your work – can be a trial for aspiring directors and writers. Enter, then, Vivid Digital. Aside from putting prize money and a commission up for grabs, this new short film competition has the wider aim of showcasing work by up-and-coming film-makers in a location where they could conceivably attract investment for future projects namely, the heart of the city.” Celine Bijleveld, The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/film/filmblog/2014/feb/08/film-making-short-film-competition-vivid-digital
