TikTok short film competition at Cannes Festival

TikTok, in partnership with Cannes International Film Festival, calls for scripted vertical short films for their global #TikTokShortFilm competition. 

The competition is intended to inspire creativity and support emerging talent. In order to be considered, creators must post the scripted video (30 seconds to 3 minutes) publicly on their page using the hashtag #TikTokShortFilm. 

A jury will select three winners, one from each category: 

  • 5,000 EUR for best editing
  • 5,000 EUR for best script
  • 10,000 EUR for the Grand Prix

The three finalists also receive funded travel to Cannes to collect their prize during the TikTok Awards Ceremony and to attend exclusive screenings during the Cannes Festival. This year the festival is held from 17 to 22 May.

This competition is part of a new partnership between TikTok and Cannes Festival, which aims to diversify the Cannes Festival audience and to give an inside look at the festival.
