Chance to show off film-making skills

Have your say

BUDDING young film-makers in Lincolnshire could win a day with the director behind the M&S Food advert.

Cut Films is an annual film-making competition organised by the Deborah Hutton Campaign and is challenging anyone under 24 to make a film which persuades their friends not to smoke.

Supporting this year’s competition is the county council-led Smokefree Lincs Alliance, which is also asking for the submissions which will then be considered for use as part of its local campaign next March.

The national prize will see the winners receive film equipment for their local school or youth club and a workshop with commercial director Charlie Stebbings, who has produced ads for M&S food, the Guinness “Bring it to Life” advert, Tesco and Haagen Dazs icecream.

l For a step-by-step guide on entering, visit before April 20. People also wishing to send their entries to the Smokefree Lincs Alliance for their campaign should contact Daniel Lowbridge on 01522 552136 or email before their deadline of February 29.
