90sec film festival

The entries are streaming in from around the world, but there's still time
to create your 90 second masterpiece some classic DepicT! films were made
over a weekend with just a couple of mates and a camera. Fancy or not,
we're looking for shorts of any genre which are original, imaginative and
engaging. Simple as that?

Don't forget that DepicT! could be your ticket to you and countless others
seeing your filmmaking brilliance on the big screen, both at Encounters
Short Film Festival and in cinemas across the UK with the Digital Screen
Network (see below for news on last year's winners). Not to mention, there
are some great prizes: 2000 for the main DepicT! '08 award which could
help you make a new film or get you a new piece of kit; a package of career
development opportunities for the top British film for the Special Mention
Award; and a lifetime membership to Shooting People for the audience's
favourite film.

Can you do it in 90 seconds? To read the rules and enter your film, visit
