PAST WINNERS

2020 COMPEITIONS

“I am excited to announce that after a tough year, particularly for the creative arts, Chorleywood Film Club are launching the ‘Mini Movie Makers’ & ‘Young Filmmakers’ Competitions for 2021. Last year, we had over 30 entries covering a wide variety of subjects from pig-tastic disasters,  Animal Intelligence Service pigeons to an evil cucumber threatening the existence of life on Earth! It was inspiring to see such creative and imaginative pieces which were shared with an audience of over 120 at the live screening. I am very much looking forward to seeing the 2021 entries and we have a fabulous panel of award-winning judges to share their own filmmaking practices and present the awards!” says Eleanor Dolan (organiser of the Film Clubs Competitions).
