New Smalls short film competition

I just got this - a call for entries for the Smalls Short Film Fest 2010.  As it says in the blurb it has been going five years already and as it is organised by Devilfish a good number of motion design chaps and chapesses get involved too...

The Smalls is proud to introduce The Smalls Short Film Fest 2010, an exciting 2-day event where we present the very best in short film from around the world and celebrate both established and new talent within independent cinema.
 
Now in our 5th year as a curator and supporter of short film this is also our 5th year presenting our annual film showcase, which will be part of The Smalls Short Film Fest 2010 – and we are working to make this year’s celebration extra special. We will screen a wide selection of exceptional short films and provide filmmakers with unique opportunities to meet and make contact with directors, writers and producers from the film and television industries. Prepare to be inspired, amused, entertained and maybe even provoked by the extraordinary program of films and special sessions that we have planned.
 
The Smalls Short Film Fest 2010, which includes this year’s public showcase, will be held at The Gallery Soho (125 Charing Cross Rd) during The London Design Festival on September 22 – 23. The best entries will win The Smalls Short Film Fest 2010 and pick up a £1,000 cash prize.
