The #FilmDooCreativity Competition is also supported by leading Film Distributors Altitude Entertainment, Picturehouse Entertainment, Peccadillo Pictures, Third Window Films, and Terracotta Distribution, as well as cutting edge film magazine Little White Lies. This is an opportunity for designers and film lovers from around the world to embrace their talent by creating an original, innovative and exciting film poster!

The competition is open from 28th January to 30th April 2015 and entrants can submit their film-inspired piece of artwork or film poster via the FilmDoo website and Adobe’s Behance platform. The winners will be announced during the Cannes Film Festival in May 2015, where their posters will be printed and promoted.

Winning designs will be chosen by a leading panel of judges from within the design and film industry. The Top Three winning entries receive the following amazing prizes from our partners:

  • Paid opportunity to design artwork for film release in 2015;
  • One year license for Adobe Creative Cloud, which includes a Behance Prosite account;
  • $1,500 (approximately £1,000) redeemable against courses from Raindance;
  • $1,500 (approximately £1,000) voucher from Scan Computers;
  • A powerful workstation graphics card from NVIDIA; and
  • A signed copy of Little White Lies’ ‘What I Love About Movies’.

FilmDoo Co-Founder Weerada Sucharitkul:

“Although FilmDoo is a Film Discovery website, we still feel that going to the cinema is a filmic experience second to none. Part of that experience is checking out the movie posters in the cinema lobby, or even collecting them, so we’re thrilled to be paying homage to the art of movie posters with such prestigious partners, allowing you, the film-viewer, to have your own work up there for others to see. So if you have an eye for film, show us what you’re made of!”

Managing Director of Picturehouse Cinemas, Lyn Goleby:

“Film poster art is key to our film marketing, and nowhere is this more evident than in our cinema lobbies. Picturehouse is a strong believer in bringing together theatrical and home entertainment in an original way that reinforces the film experience in cinemas. We are happy to be supporting FilmDoo’s innovative competition.”

Matt Aindow, Head of Pro Video, Scan Computers, Filmmaker and Artist:

"Scan Pro Video is delighted to be joining other world class partners in sponsoring Filmdoo. Working as bespoke system builders to the creative industries gives us special insight into the importance of supporting the development of filmmakers and digital creatives. Many of us started as 2D artists in one form or another, which is why this competition has special resonance.”


The FilmDoo Manifesto

FilmDoo is different. The way we watch films has changed drastically in the past decade, however all too often, films from abroad remain hidden and unavailable, at times huge success stories in their countries of origin, yet unheard of elsewhere. In a world where culture, news and travel are more accessible than ever before, it is time for movies to make the leap.

Whether it is our specifically tailored search engine that remembers what you like, don’t like or are just curious about, our editorial that enlightens and entertains or our curated strands of features and shorts that exude that festival feel, FilmDoo is the film-lover’s friend with all the know-how. With these tools, FilmDoo’s business model looks to disrupt and be a game changer in the film industry.  In time, we expect to become the first truly global platform to help discover films from around the world and to give them an international audience base.

Independent, international, art-house, niche, archive, cult, underground - FilmDoo will cater to all tastes outside of the mainstream whose messages reach far beyond borders. There are too many amazing stories slipping between the cracks. We’re going to change that. Join us and help discover the films you care about.
