The Wilson’s Tales Project and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival announce a £500 film award

The Festival is pleased to announce another cash prize, in partnership with Wilson’s Tales of the Borders Project.

The Wilson’s Tales Project are offering an award to aspirational filmmakers to re-interpret one of “Wilson’s Tales”. These were originally published by John Wilson, Editor of the Berwick Advertiser in the 1830s who became a publishing sensation.

The Award Scheme is seeking to encourage local, aspirational filmmakers or non-professional filmmaking groups to consider re-telling one of the Wilson’s early tales in a modern filmed media format.

This year’s selection is “The Faithful Wife”, a story connected with the Battle of Flodden, which is also being commemorated this year.

There will be a cash prize of £300, and a runner up prize of £200, donated by the Wilson’s Tales Project.

Filmmakers are invited to make a short film re-interpreting the tale of not less than 1 minute and not more than 15 minutes duration.

For further information on Wilson’s Tales and to read The Faithful Wife, go to http://www.wilsonstales.co.uk.

Entries should be notified in advance by 19th July 2013 at the latest. The finished film/s should be delivered to the festival on DVD by 30th August 2013.

The films will be judged by a Jury and winning entry will be shown as part of Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, Wednesday 25th – Sunday 29th September 2013.
