The SIGMA60 short film festival is now open!

Whether you’re a seasoned cine pro or just dipping your toe into the exciting world of film-making, you might be interested to know about a brand new short film festival from SIGMA UK to celebrate SIGMA’s 60th anniversary. 

Entries must be 60 seconds or shorter, and without spoken word. There is no theme, so your film can focus on any subject you want. Anyone can enter and there is no entry fee.

You don’t need to use SIGMA gear to enter the SIGMA60 competition. In fact, you can shoot your short film with any kit you want, from a humble smartphone right up to a full-production 8K set-up. We’re looking for a creative concept, beautiful camera-work, a strong narrative and polished editing.

The closing date for submissions is 5pm on 9 December 2021, and winners will be announced on 5 January 2021. The video below will tell you everything you need to know about entering.
