Figgis rings up short fest

Competish features 15-second digital pix

LONDON — Helmer and digital cinema advocate Mike Figgis is dabbling in mobile phone content with the launch of the second annual Nokia Shorts competition today in London.

The competish is for 15-second micromovies using digital equipment. Ten finalists will be selected by a panel and promoted at London’s alternative Raindance film fest in October.

“The future is digital, but a good idea will always be a good idea,” Figgis said. “I am intrigued to see how ideas can be made in 15 seconds. This is not as easy as it sounds; it requires real filmmaking and a profound understanding of visual imagery.”

The winner gets the opportunity to make a short film using Raindance facilities and Nokia money. Last year’s winner was Rob Glenny.
