Birmingham’s Producers’ Forum has announced they will be running the ’48 Hour Film Challenge’ as part of the Stoke Your Fires film and animation festival. The 48 Hour Film Challenge will launch at 10:00am on Saturday 19th February 2011 at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent. Films can be shot in any format using whatever equipment you wish (from HD cameras to your own mobile phone) — however it must be submitted on either a DVD, or uploaded to YouTube for viewing online, by the competition deadline. All films must be between one to seven minutes in length and there will be a theme your film must include, which will be announced at the start of the competition. Entry fee: Under 18s – £10; Over 18s – £15. Teams are limited to a maximum of five members only (the oldest member in the group will dictate the age group category). To register your interest and get an application form please contact Rebecca at: firstname.lastname@example.org

“Are you a student at Staffordshire University looking to start your own business: alongside your studies at Staffordshire University?; or instead of going into a company for your placement year? Or are you a Staffordshire University graduate who is looking to develop a business idea full or part-time?”
The University also has a wider start-up scheme for locally-based graduates from any university, which was previously featured on Creative Stoke in early November.
