Pegah Farahmand is the Editor for Channel 4’s Random Acts, their dedicated arts strand for innovative and creative short film commissions. Before joining C4, she spent 10 years at VICE, working with filmmaking talent such as Spike Jonze, Jonathan Glazer and Sally Potter, and overseeing the content from brand partnerships including Google, Ford and Nike. We’re glad to have one of the short film industry’s most unique influencers on board, and our 3 finalists will receive a meeting with Pegah and Random Acts this month.
From the 1st to 14th of each month, you will be able to submit your short films via the links on this page. The submitted films will then be reviewed internally and top 12 films will go through to the voting round on the leaderboard.
For the last two weeks of the month, members will be able to vote for their favourites on the leaderboard with the star rating system. Voting closes at midnight on the last day of the month, and the top 3 films will go to a special industry judge.
Previous judges have included Danny Boyle, Jack Thorne, Nick Cave, Kim Longinotto and Imogen Heap.
All 3 finalists will receive a Vimeo+ memberships (worth around $60). But, more importantly, they will get feedback about their film from a leading industry figure. Winning films will also be featured on the blog and plugged on SP’s social media channels.
