Undercurrents wins film festival

Competition winner’s film to be screened live in Republic Westfield London

‘State Your Independence’ competition Winner announced!

Republic are pleased to announce the winner of their unique ‘State Your Independence’ film competition. The competition, which invited budding film directors to upload their own unique interpretation of ‘state your independence’ onto You Tube, was the result of a short film, commissioned by Republic and directed by renowned fashion photographer and film director Willem Jaspert.

Entries were uploaded to YouTube, whittled down to the top 5, and judged by Willem Jaspert to select one 1st prize winner.

Republic are marking the occasion by showing the exclusive winning film, titled ‘Recycle your video tapes’ by Paul O’Connor of Undercurrents, as well as the 2 runners up, ‘Be Free’ by Luke Armstrong and ‘State your Independence Time’ by Leeds Broadcasting Students Eleanor Bucher, Claire Hickey and Rebecca Carter, in Republics new Westfield London store on 23rd May. The store, designed in Republic’s ‘utilitarian meets kitsch’ inimitable style, will screen all three films throughout the day.
