Tomorrow Unlocked Film Festival (TUFF)
is looking for filmmakers to create compelling short films about how technology shapes our world. How it inspires and helps us to change lives, create a better future, imagine beyond and defend ourselves if this future is being challenged.
Are you a creative mind who can tell thought provoking stories that deserve a broad audience of innovators, artists, technologists, thinkers, scientists, hackers and entrepreneurs? TUFF needs short films with a strong storyline lasting no longer than 15 minutes. Make it powerful, human and emotive, while setting technology and its opportunities vs. challenges for real people and humanity at the heart of it. Important topics for TUFF are privacy, the future or communities, but feel free to choose another topic that is close to your heart as long as it meets the set criteria.
A top notch jury of recognized film directors will select one grand prize winner who will win $10.000, three runners-up who will win $3000 each and six finalists that will receive $1000 each. That makes in total 10 films that will all be publicly screened in Barcelona at the Tomorrow Unlocked Film Festival on Sunday 5 April in a scenic cinema and a selection also at the Security Analyst Summit, both reaching a broad international audience. In addition we will be investing in promoting the best short films through online magazine Tomorrow Unlocked
and its SM channels and building a global audience for them.
Deadline for submissions is 20 Feb 2020, 23:59 GMT. No submission fees.
The Tomorrow Unlocked Film Festival (TUFF) will be closely integrated with the Security Analyst Summit 2020
(SAS20) which will take place from 6 to 9 April in Barcelona. SAS is an annual event that attracts high-caliber anti-malware researchers, global law enforcement agencies and CERTs and senior executives from financial services, technology, healthcare, academia and government agencies. The previous events were joined by members of leading global companies, such as Samsung, Adobe, Microsoft, BlackBerry, CISCO, Boeing, Interpol, the World Bank, Team Cymru, The ShadowServer Foundation, ICSA Labs and Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions.
