The LIDF is looking for the best young documentarians between the ages of 16 – 19. If you are thinking about a future in photography, documentary film, or digital media we want to see what you can do.
The competition is open to photographers and filmmakers. All you have to do is send us a photographic or moving image PORTRAIT.
This could be a portrait of a member of your family, a friend….. it could be a self-portrait, it could be a portrait of a place, a landscape, a shop, a pet, your favourite coat….. the possibilities are endless. It could be serious, or humorous, but above all it needs to create a narrative, to tell the story of a place, or a person, or an object, that is important to you.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
The LIDF (London International Documentary Festival) is the UK’s largest documentary festival. With Hollywood elite such as Martin Scorsese, and Steven Soderberg choosing the LIDF for premieres, the LIDF SCHOOLS COMPETITION is the place to get your work seen.
