JJ Abrams announces Star Wars Fan Film Awards 2016



Are you a Star Wars fan and budding filmmaker? Then this announcement from The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams and Lucasfilm is for you.



Here's the official description:

"Welcome to the Star Wars Fan Film Awards 2016, a celebration of fan creativity inspired by a galaxy far, far away! Create and submit your own Star Wars film for a chance to win a Star Wars Prize Pack consisting of Star Wars-themed merchandise, a limited edition print of Star Wars concept art autographed by the artist, and a commemorative trophy."

Troops is my favourite fan film and one of the earliest memories of viewing content online. Winners will be announced at Star Wars Celebration Europe in July and I'll be there for the 3-day event at London's ExCeL Centre.

So, will you be entering? Let me know in the comments below.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a Sphero BB-8 spin-off to script, storyboard and shoot on an iPhone. The competition closes 24th April.
