Here are some current film competitions you can apply for in Cornwall.
Hypatia Trust (closing date 15th April)
The Hypatia Trust is commissioning 8 new short films to celebrate contemporary women in Cornwall’s musical life. They’re looking for ideas that tell diverse stories of modern women involved in any genre of music in Cornwall, from performers and composers to teachers, instrument makers, music therapists or simply women for whom music has played a significant role in their daily life. £1000 will be awarded to produce each successful commission, and they are welcoming applications for non-fiction ideas between 5-7 minutes in length.
