Using Language to dis(connect)
A Short Multilingual Film Competition

The University of Roehampton invites GCSE and A Level pupils across England to enter a multilingual film festival!*


We have a passion for languages at Roehampton and seek to showcase the value of languages and explore their creative potential through film. Films need to include more than one language, through both audio and subtitle channels.
Pupils can create films (of up to 10 mins) and enter one of two categories: GCSE or A Level.

Shortlisted films (selected by Roehampton students and staff) will be invited to participate at the Roehampton Multilingual Film Festival in June 2019, where the winners will be announced .

Online learning packs, online tuition and workshops will be provided in phases to participating schools, supporting teachers and students to create short films with free and easily accessible equipment.
