Could your short movie win this Abu Dhabi competition?

In this era of the smartphone, it seems we just can’t stop filming and taking pictures.

Whether it's Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook, we’re constantly sharing things on social media, and some of us have gotten quite good at it, too.

Looking to tap into talent for filming in Abu Dhabi and around the region, the Smovies Short Film Competition 2019 is here to challenge filmmakers once more.

The competition, run in partnership with BrandMoxie and VOX Cinemas, is now open for entries.

Entrants are tasked with creating a short film that's up to 60-seconds long and under the theme of fighting climate change.

The A Planet Worth Fighting For theme is the eight edition of the competition and filmmakers have until July 30 to submit their entry.

Videos can be in any language, but they must include English subtitles.
