Short films. Big Ambitions
In 2018, Craghoppers were looking for their next adventure and started exploring ways they could support the arts and emerging new talent. Partnering with the Discover Film Festival, the Craghoppers Film Prize was created to offer the largest cash prize in the world to short filmmakers. Short films can be defined as anything under 40 minutes and spans all genres. Alongside this, short films are also the fastest growing medium in filmmaking – and unfortunately the most underfunded.
This initiative encourages the next generation of filmmakers to create thrilling new content for emerging digital platforms.
This bold initiative has grown year on year, making the Craghoppers Film Prize one of the most coveted accolades within the international film community, - associating the Craghoppers name with quality, innovation, and creativity.
The last few years have been challenging for us all and the arts have suffered significantly. At Craghoppers we have continued our support awarding prizes to students and other finalists.
Investing in the arts
Craghoppers celebrates the very best talent of student and emerging short filmmakers from around the world.
The winning film receives £12,000 and the runner up £6,000. Awards are also given to two student short film prizes, one Best UK and one Best International Student of £1,000 each.
In addition, we also award Best Social Impact and Best Documentary prizes of £4,000 each
