I see the movie soon and this looks like a nice event.

ATLANTA (Nov. 08, 2019) –  NBCUniversal  and Ideas United have partnered to produce a video submission  contest targeting  emerging filmmakers to promote Universal Pictures’  thrilling new  epic, ​1917 ​ , from  Oscar®-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes. Set at the height of World War I, the film follows two British soldiers, in  real time, on a seemingly impossible mission, in a race against the clock,  to deliver a critical message to the  frontlines.  Inspired by the style of the movie,  filmmakers are challenged to submit a two-minute video filmed in  one continuous shot, focused on the theme of delivering an urgent message.    “Ideas United has the unique opportunity to tap into a global network of talented filmmakers and creative  thinkers,” said David Roemer, co-founder and CEO, Ideas United. “By partnering with Universal Pictures, we are  able to challenge the next generation of creators with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will help them  showcase their talents and give them a chance to meet some of the filmmakers and cast of ​1917 ​ .”    Ideas United will manage the open call for emerging storytellers through its Campus Movie Fest participants and  its global network of filmmakers, producers, and writers. To be considered, each participant must be 18 years or  older and a U.S. resident. Contestants will have until December 2, 2019, to upload their two-minute video to  Instagram, Facebook or YouTube using the hashtag, “#1917oneshotchallenge” and then upload the public link  to ​1917oneshotchallenge.com​.    Ideas United will narrow submissions to the finalists, and ​1917 ​ filmmakers will select the ultimate winner. The  winner and a guest will be flown to Los Angeles to attend the ​1917 ​ premiere on December 18, 2019.     For more information ​and official rules​, visit ​1917oneshotchallenge.com​.    ###
