Shure to support emerging filmmakers at Little Wing Film Festival

Shure has announced its support of Little Wing Film Festival for the second year running.

The Festival is exclusively for first-time filmmakers, students, and recent graduates and provides them with the tools and opportunities to foster career growth – from a platform for showcasing their work, to education, networking and support.

This year, Shure is sponsoring and supporting three film categories: Best Director, Film Futures Award and the Film Enterprise Award. The Company will be providing three prize bundles, each consisting of a VP83F LensHopper Camera-Mount Condenser Microphone with Integrated Flash Recording and SRH840 Professional Monitoring Headphones.

Little Wing is returning for a third year in September, screening some of the best new films from emerging filmmakers across the globe. 2019 brings a larger venue and wider platform for filmmakers to learn, share and collaborate, while furthering the dialogue around industry challenges faced by today’s emerging auteurs.

“We’re proud to be supporting Little Wing Film Festival again this year by providing prizes for three awards,” said Paul Crognale, manager of Global Marketing for Musician and Consumer Audio at Shure. “It’s very important to us to continue championing emerging talent and supporting young people entering creative industries.”

Festival director Mariah Mathew added: “Thanks to partners who continue to support young people breaking into the creative industries, we have another arsenal of fantastic prizes to award our winning filmmakers, including advice sessions with members of BBC Films.

“This year we have added two new categories to reward elements of filmmaking we nurture in the future of film: accomplishing brilliant work on a micro budget, the Enterprise Award, and championing challenging storytelling and representation on and off screen, the Future Film Award. We’re looking for works of all lengths and genres from students, recent graduates, and first-time filmmakers. Submissions for the festival close on July 22 and can be submitted by FilmFreeway.”
