Paus Launches Lockdown Liberation Competition

Paus, the streaming app for independent films, launched its Lockdown Liberation competition inviting filmmakers around the world to submit any film (up to five minutes long) made during lockdown that meets the brief ‘Lockdown and the New World’.

Submissions will be judged on their originality and creativity in interpreting the brief and can be any genre, any format and use any resources to hand (even mobile phones). The only thing asked is that films are produced in line with Government social distancing guidelines. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 am BST on June 18th.
