This year we again see the Margs Dirty Film Festival as part of the Margs Dirty Weekend. All those budding film makers out there will be asked to put a short film together, a selection of those will be shown on the night for judging.
A short film. like a short trail, can be over in a few minutes but if it packs a punch and really picks you up then it is worth the ride. We want you to make a short film and get our audience buzzing!
Anything and everything to do with mountain biking, riding, trail building use your imagination. It’s your film, your story – let your mind run FREE!
All entries MUST be submitted by 5:00pm Friday, 24 June 2017.
The film must be longer than 1 minute and shorter than 3 minutes.
There is no entry fee.
If you wish you are able to submit more than one entry.
If selected as a finalist, your film will be screened at the Margs Dirty Film Festival on Saturday, 22 July 2017 and may be uploaded to the MRORCA website and / or Facebook page. We may also use the whole or part of your film to promote future events within MRORCA.
You can submit your film in any of the following formats: AVI, MOV, QuickTime. Shoot your film any way you like but make sure we can use it. We will accept entries on DVD, USB drive or HDD.
