AHRC Research in Film Awards

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) are marking their 10th Anniversary with a number of activities including a Research in Film Award competition. This is designed to showcase, reward and recognise the best of the large and increasing number of high-quality short films (defined as no longer than 30 minutes) produced as outputs or by-products of arts and humanities research.

Films are produced in a great many ways through and as a result of research. They may be primary outputs, by-products, records of research undertaken, dissemination tools or practice-based research itself. They may include reconstructions and enactments, animations, installations and gallery pieces, games, interactive storytelling or co-produced work including collaborations with community groups, and may take the form of documentaries, visual essays or broadcast programmes. They may entail any of these, and much more besides.

Awards will be made in five categories (see below) and the winner in each category will win £2,000 to be invested in their future film-making activities. All applicants must accompany their film submissions with supporting text, which invites all entrants to make explicit their films’ links with arts and humanities research.

3.1: Best film produced as a result of AHRC or AHRB funding – ‘The Anniversary Award’

3.2: Best film produced by a researcher or research team

3.3: Best film by a doctoral student

3.4: Award for innovation in film

3.5: Inspiration Award – Best film inspired by the arts and humanities (public category)

The closing date is 11th June 2015
