Submissions are now closed for the Chris Anderson Award for Best Young Filmmaker

Submissions are now closed for the Chris Anderson Award for Best Young Filmmaker!

We would like to send out a big thank you to all the young filmmakers, organisations and film clubs around the North-East of England and Scottish Borders for their film submissions. We have had a record number of entries this year which will make the final selection a very difficult task.

The Chris Anderson Award was launched in 2007 to encourage young people involved in filmmaking and to identify promising new talent across the North East and Scottish Borders. The award offers a cash prize which has kindly been donated by the family of Chris Anderson - his widow Chrissie Anderson, and his son Paul WS Anderson, director of Resident Evil and Alien Vs Predator.

We hope to announce the final selection shortly on the website and the filmmakers will be the first to know!

The final selected films for the competition will be screened at The Maltings Theatre on Saturday 24th September at 2pm
