Fresh Online is a new BBC online space for short form documentary films. It’s all about finding the voices and directors of the future by giving upcoming factual filmmakers an opportunity to showcase their work on a BBC platform.
BBC Fresh are now looking for submissions of short films between 2 and 10 minutes long, made in the UK in 2013, to publish on the Fresh Online site. There is also the possibility that the best of these films will be featured in a compilation programme on BBC Three in 2014.
Fresh Online films should give an insight into what’s really important for young people in 2013. They want films about subjects and issues that speak to the BBC Three audience, whether that’s rites of passage moments, relationships, crime, identity, sexuality, multi-culturalism, or religion. You could tell your story by filming for just one day with one amazing person, or you could spend weeks crafting an ‘essay’ about something you feel just has to be said. They want films full of emotion, humour and insight that display a talent for narration, storytelling and imaginative directing.
Fresh Online is the sister project of Fresh, BBC Three’s successful broadcast scheme for new documentary filmmakers. Find out more about the BBC Three audience on the BBC Commissioning website.
