THE FILM BRIEF:

You have under 2 minutes to persuade your friend not to try smoking. It’s that simple.

the ULTIMATE film competition

This is an anti-tobacco and anti-smoking film competition. But it’s also more than that.

 

It’s young people giving us and their mates their own views on smoking. It is their creativity, their talent and their imagination.

 

This is one of the biggest youth film competitions in the UK.

 

Are you under 25? Do you have what it takes to get your film on the big screen?

Paula started as a volunteer at the charity in 1996 and worked her way up to CEO. This is her third time judging the competition and she believes Cut Films can help to prevent the next generation of lung cancer patients.

"We want to make a difference to all ages and help them realise it is not cool or fashionable to smoke, as you are not just affecting yourself."
