Here is your chance to vote for your favourite short film to promote Brighton & Hove to visitors. Nine 60-second movies have been shortlisted for a competiiton organised by the council’s tourism arm VisitBrighton and film group Final Cut.
Winners will be announced at the CineCity International Film Festival at the Sallis Benney Theatre on November 25. Public votes will decide the People’s Choice category.
The idea is to create an eye-catching film that people will enjoy and pass around on the internet.
Chairman of the council’s culture committee David Smith said, “Short films such as Cadbury’s drumming gorilla can be good ways of promoting things by so-called viral marketing. That’s the sort of thing we’re looking for to promote the city. So I’d urge everyone to have a look at the entries and choose their favourite.”
Shortlisted movies are:
- Brighton’s Worst Kept Secret by Tony Moon
- Brighton Rocks, a Whirlwind Guide by Nick Yeomans
- There are Many Faces to Brighton by Glynis Freeman
- B Right On by Drew Cameron
- Hold Tight: Brighton – by Daniel Parsons
- Crush by Alessandra Cateleta
- Dreamcity by Elena Moss
- Art:House by Barbara Myers and Paul Loman
- One Minute by Sylvia Bernat.
Films can be viewed on visitbrighton.com or finalcut.gb.com. Deadline for voting is November 20.
CineCity celebrates Brighton film makers over the last 70 years. Also screened will be Brighton’s first official tourist film, made 50 years ago. See www.cine-city.co.uk
