Features


Cornwall Film Festival award 2005

Make a movie

Here is your chance to get funding to write, shoot and produce your own film in Cornish. The Govynn Kernewek Award, is a cash award raised by the Cornwall Film Festival and given to filmmakers to make Cornish films.


The Govynn Kernewek Award encourages Cornish filmmakers to experiment with and produce contemporary films in the Cornish language.

The winning film will employ local cast and crew and be able to represent and raise the profile of Cornish language films at the Celtic Film Festival, both in and outside Cornwall.

The successful filmmaker has a year in which to make the film with the help of experienced mentors and a translator. 

Previous winners

In 2003 Carl Grose was awarded £3,000 for his film 'Kernow's Kick-Ass Kung Fu Kweens' and last year Mathy Tremewan and Fran Broadhurst were awarded £5,000 to make 'De Su'. 

Carl Grose, Winner of 2003 GK Award says: "Pitch your idea. Write it. Shoot it. Stick it in front of an audience and await the reaction. If your going to do this, why not go for the The GK Award?

"It offers as its prize the rarest of things - technical support, the loan of quality equipment and, wow, a budget. The GK Award is an indispensable opportunity for aspiring Cornish filmmakers. Go for it!"

Proposals are short listed before the Festival and the short listed filmmakers are asked to present a pitch, and answer questions about their project in front of an audience at a lively event during the Festival.  The audience and a panel then vote to find the winner. Deadline for entries is Monday 31 October.
