Amateur film makers are urged to get their creative juices flowing, and submit their films to national competition, ‘Film the House’, before June 30.

The competition celebrates up-and-coming amateur film producers, directors and script writers, and gives entrants the chance to win a screening of their film to industry executives at the House of Commons.

Milton Keynes South MP Iain Stewart will nominate his top film from his constituency for the national competition, which aims to also raise awareness of the importance of intellectual property rights, film and the creative industries.

Mr Stewart: “This competition is a great opportunity for aspiring film makers of any age looking to find a way into the industry. I am excited to see the films that people from my constituency can come up with, and hope to see as many submissions as possible.”

Categories include drama, thriller, action, comedy, music video, documentary, as well as a separate category for under 18s which can be any genre.

Winners will be announced on October 30 at a special reception and screening of the winning film at the Houses of Parliament.
