Digital short fim competition PULSE now seeking entries

London’s future Andrea Arnolds and Christopher Nolans are being invited to enter their innovative film applications to PULSE, the capital’s "foremost and fiercely competitive digital short scheme".
Since it started four years ago PULSE has launched such hotly-tipped film talents as Leigh Hodgkinson, Kara Miller, Robin Baker and Josh Appiganesi.
The talented teams of London-based directors, producers and writers will need to be telling original stories with a powerful audio and visual edge to see their digital films of no more than ten minutes become a reality.
This year’s PULSE scheme will commission a maximum of ten films - with budgets ranging from £2,000 to £10,000 depending on subject - which will take a share in £80,000 of funding to propel London’s new talent to the industry’s attention. The deadline for applications is the 22nd July 2005.
Films made under the PULSE scheme have garnered a number of prestigious awards and have screened at major film festivals including Clermont-Ferrand short film festival, The Times bfi London Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, the 58th Edinburgh International Film Festival and Brief Encounters and have been included in national DVD compilations.
As part of the ground-breaking VET Broadbandlab initiative the entire slate of films made under PULSE 2003 are now available to watch online on the Video Jukebox to watch the films visit
Launched in 2002 in partnership with the UK Film Council’s New Cinema Fund, PULSE's ambition is to produce a new generation of film-makers who use digital technology creatively to tell stories in groundbreaking ways.
The UK Film Council’s New Cinema Fund invests £5 million each year in films that illustrate unique ideas and innovative approaches. Each year £500,000 from the Fund is invested into digital short films across the UK.
