Danny Boyle, director of "Trainspotting," "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours," will judge a short film competition that's part of the Shuffle arts festival.
Shuffle, which will take place July 31-August 4, is a music, film and arts festival that takes place right outside of London. It showcases a series of events that will be centered around the themes of death, nature and survival.
The short film competition, one of the first programs to be announced for the festival, invites filmmakers to submit a short film under these three categories: Science and Imagination, the City and Young People (under the age of 25).
Some of the prizes include a chance to see how the director works as well as the chance to fly to California and New York to receive a once-in-a-lifetime filmmaking opportunity. More information on prizes will be revealed at a later date.
"Shuffle is the most fun anyone can have in an asylum and graveyard in Mile End," Boyle said. "It's going to be brilliant: outdoor film screenings, live music, a restaurant serving locally foraged food, and a fantastic program of science events. The point of the festival is to help build a stronger community in East London and campaign for permanently affordable housing in the area, so please do come on by."
The full Shuffle lineup will be disclosed on June 9.
