DepicT! challenges the international creative community to make distinctive, imaginative and engaging short films under 90 seconds long. Chosen from over 700 entries from 49 countries, the 20 films on this year's shortlist are now in the running for the main DepicT! Award of £1500, the Royal Photographic Society Award of £1000, the British Special Mention and Channel 4's Random Acts Special Mention.
This big screen premiere is also a chance to meet the talent behind the films and reflect on the possibilities and challenges of the ultra-short form. There is also the DepicT! Shooting People Audience Award, which you can vote for at depict.org from Tue 1 Sept.
