Sheffield Doc/Fest is partnering with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT and Crossover, an international digital media and content program, to create a new short film competition. Digital Revolutions will feature three-minute short films depicting how filmmakers see information technology impacting the world around them. The judges will be looking at how filmmakers use social media to get their films noticed as well as the quality of the films. Entries are being accepted until Friday, October 15 at the Digital Revolutions website in two categories: amateur and professional. The professional prize is £5,000 and the amateur prize is £10,000. The entries will be judged by a panel of five industry professionals including Frank Boyd, creative director of Crossover; Heather Croall, director of Sheffield Doc/Fest and producer of Crossover Labs and Elizabeth Sparrow, president of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
