Film the house

Film The House is a competition run by MPs to find the filmmakers of the future. It also raises
awareness of the importance of protecting intellectual property (IP) rights among creators, legislators
and the general public.

Competition details

A parliamentary-based film and scriptwriting competition for student and independent filmmakers based in the UK.

Entries are submitted to your local MP so the competition gives Parliamentarians an opportunity to engage with a grass-roots creative demographic and provides the creative community with a vehicle through which to communicate their issues to legislators.

In short, Film the House provides a means for the UK creative industries to communicate the importance of protecting their intellectual property rights in a fun manner which gives a foundation for Parliamentarians to push hard to protect creative output and for MPs’ constituents to interact with their local MP (perhaps for the first time).

The competition is sponsored by Lord Clement-Jones, Wes Streeting MP and Rt Hon John Whittingdale OBE MP.
