BBC New Music Shorts

In 2006 along with BBC Talent and the BBC Film Network we asked people to pitch film ideas inspired by tracks from leading independent record labels. Five ideas were commissioned and received a budget of £5,000 to make their film.

This year we're looking for five more new filmmakers to be inspired by tracks by King Creosote, The Earlies, James Yorkston, the Cinematic Orchestra and Wiley, among others.Get details from BBC New Talent.
