Attention Filmmakers – 1917 One-Shot Short Film Contest

NBCUniversal Partners with Ideas United on 1917 One-Shot Short Film Contest

ATLANTA (Nov. 08, 2019) – NBCUniversal and Ideas United have partnered to produce a video submission contest targeting emerging filmmakers to promote Universal Pictures’ thrilling new epic, 1917, from Oscar®-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes. Set at the height of World War I, the film follows two British soldiers, in real-time, on a seemingly impossible mission, in a race against the clock, to deliver a critical message to the frontlines. Inspired by the style of the movie, filmmakers are challenged to submit a two-minute video filmed in one continuous shot, focused on the theme of delivering an urgent message.

“Ideas United has the unique opportunity to tap into a global network of talented filmmakers and creative thinkers,” said David Roemer, co-founder and CEO, Ideas United. “By partnering with Universal Pictures, we are able to challenge the next generation of creators with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will help them showcase their talents and give them a chance to meet some of the filmmakers and cast of 1917.”

Ideas United will manage the open call for emerging storytellers through its Campus Movie Fest participants and its global network of filmmakers, producers, and writers. To be considered, each participant must be 18 years or older and a U.S. resident. Contestants will have until December 2, 2019, to upload their two-minute video to Instagram, Facebook or YouTube using the hashtag, “#1917oneshotchallenge” and then upload the public link to 1917oneshotchallenge.com .

Ideas United will narrow submissions to the finalists, and 1917 filmmakers will select the ultimate winner. The winner and a guest will be flown to Los Angeles to attend the 1917 premiere on December 18, 2019.
