Event description

Description

Generously supported by Paisley 2021

As part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival (SMHAFF) 2017, St Matthew’s is looking for established and amateur film-makers to ‘Reclaim’ the art of Silent Film.

We are looking for creative interpretations of what a Silent Film is in the 21st Century, in any genre. We are offering film makers the opportunity to have live accompaniment improvised by Donald Mackenzie, House Organist to the Odeon Cinema, Leicester Square, as well as the opportunity to be screened as part of St Matthew’s Presents ‘Silent Night’ in Paisley. All entries will be curated and selected by an independent specialist panel. The winner of the Silent Night Competition will receive a cash prize of £250, sponsored by Penny Lane Homes and a runner up will receive a prize of £100 courtesy of Paisley 2021.

A silent film is a film with no synchronised recorded sound, no spoken dialogue, and is generally accompanied by live music. The silent film era lasted from 1895 to 1936, and it is believed around 70% of Silent Films have been lost since this time.

Film entries will be:

  • No longer than 5 minutes

  • Produced in Scotland

  • Contain no dialogue.

Deadlines:

  • All Enties must be received by 28 September 2017

  • The Screening will be the 19th October, St Matthews Church, Paisley, PA1 1XL

Please note this is for submission of films only, to attend the event please see St Matthew's Presents... Silent Night
