film competition deadline end of August
the Robin Hood Tax
"t’s really easy to enter: we’re looking for films that tell the audience about The Robin Hood Tax in an interesting and innovative way.
The Robin Hood Tax is a tiny tax on banks that would give billions to tackle poverty and climate change, here and abroad. The public have bailed out the banks to the tune of £20 trillion in total. In the UK alone the bailout cost £31,250 per person. Isn’t it now time society was paid back?
Our message to governments is clear: “Tax the banks, not the people.”
We think the Robin Hood Tax could be the most important idea of this generation. What do you think? "
The panel of top film and advertising talent will be looking for films that are bold, original and have a strong voice using the following criteria. Think big. Try something new. If you can create something that changes even one person’s perspective then you are succeeding.
* Creativity – Films that take the idea and interpret it in new ways. Why does it matter to you?
* Clarity – We’re looking for films that cut through the complexities of the subject and present a clear, strong argument for why this idea is a no brainer.
* Inspiring – Will it get people excited? Will it inspire people to sign up to the campaign? Will people want to send it onto their friends and family?
* Promotion – We will consider the number of Youtube views your film receives so get sharing. Your film deserves to be seen as widely as possible.
* Duration – Films must be between 60-90 seconds including the compulsory end slides and logo.
* Language – Films must be in English language or subtitled in English
* Content – Your film deserves to be seen by everyone so make sure it can be. Please make sure it’s U/PG rated
