Short Film Makers Sought


Budding film makers invited to make short films about recycling!


Budding Film Makers Invited to Make Short Films about Recycling.

The Butterfly Garden in Cheltenham is a social enterprise that works with people of all ages dealing with disablement of any kind.  It is an educational, therapeutic and recreational scheme, based initially on gardening, but now offering so much more.

It caters for those looking to escape the world, those looking to re-enter it and some, who are still just looking. Its doors are open to anyone without obligation.

As part of its on-going activities The Butterfly Garden collects cans as part of Alupro's 'Every Can Counts' programme and this month has launched a competition inviting budding film makers to make a short film (2-5 minutes) about recycling.  The winner will win £250 with runner-up prizes also up for grabs. 

No previous film making experience is necessary and the competition is open to everyone.

For more information about the competition email: info@thebutterflygarden.org.  The closing date for entries is 30 June 2018.
