The Wilson’s Tales Project and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival announce £500 worth of film awards

The Wilson’s Tales Project is pleased to announce a cash prize, in partnership with Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival.

We are offering an award to aspirational filmmakers to re-interpret one of the Tales.

The Award Scheme is seeking to encourage local, aspirational filmmakers or non-professional filmmaking groups to consider re-telling one of the Wilson’s early tales in a modern filmed media format.

This year’s selection is “The Faithful Wife”, a story connected with the Battle of Flodden, which is also being commemorated this year.

There will be a cash prize of £300, and a runner up prize of £200, donated by the Wilson’s Tales Project.

Filmmakers are invited to make a short film re-interpreting the tale of not less than 1 minute and not more than 15 minutes duration.
