Competition in bid to find new young film writers

Young writers from the North East are being urged to enter a competition which could see their ideas turned into a feature film.

North Tyneside film company ACT 2 CAM is accepting pitches for a 60-minute feature film, which will be performed by a cast of actors aged 11 to 16.

The winner will be invited to develop their idea into a screenplay with help from its writing team. The winner’s school will also receive £500.

The film is set to premiere at the Odeon Silverlink, before being released onto DVD and entered into film festivals worldwide.

Rules for the competition, plus information on how to write a film pitch, can be found online at
