The Peddler 30 Day Short Film Competition

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Monday, May 16, 2011

The PeddlerTo celebrate the UK cinema release of The Peddler on 15th July, Network Releasing are inviting filmmakers to submit their short film to a contest judged by film director Eduardo de la Serna, Time Out Film Editor Dave Calhoun, and Managing Director of Network Tim Beddows.

The Peddler

The Peddler
Daniel Burmeister is the most prolific filmmaker you’ve never heard of. Armed with a camera and enough charm to persuade entire towns to join in on his dreams, this tireless, jolly DIY movie veteran rolls in his beat up old car from one backwater Argentine town to another. There, in exchange for room and board, he turns out a feature film in 30 days, transforming these sleepy villages into bustling film sets and the bored populace into avid performers.

Network Releasing are giving members of the UK public the chance to see their own short film in cinemas and on DVD in the spirit of The Peddler. Like Daniel Burmeister, members of the UK public will have to submit their films in 30 days! Described as, “A beautiful film” (Time Out), “A gem” (Evening Standard) and “Be Kind Rewind only for real” (, The Peddler is one of the most remarkable films anyone is likely to see this year.

The winner and runners-up will be announced at an event screening at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, London, on Friday 15th July. The winning film will be played prior to theatrical screenings of ‘The Peddler' at the Riverside on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th July, and will also be included with runners-up on the UK DVD release later this year. Deadline for submissions is 12:00am on 11 June 2011 (but don't wait!), and the contest is open to UK-based filmmakers.
