To celebrate the release of the new historical drama Suffragette, O2’s GoThinkBig and the BFI are offering young people a shot at filmmaking success. 

With the BFI London Film Festival very much on the horizon, the search for Britain’s next big filmmaking talent continues with this prestigious competition for young people across the UK. 

If you’re aged between 18 and 24 and have a keen eye for cinema, the BFI and GoThinkBig are offering up a chance to receive professional training from experts working in all areas of the film industry, from directors to writers and beyond. 

Applicants can apply for eight different roles in the project, covering every aspect of film production, and those successful will win a place on one of three crews, each making a short film which will be shown at an exclusive screening of the hotly-anticipated new drama Suffragette during this year’s BFI London Film Festival on 15th October.
