Film Competition

For the first time, BAFTA in London will mark European anti-Human Trafficking Day, 18 October, by hosting a film festival, organised by RENATE.

As part of the festival, RENATE is inviting 16-24 year-olds in European countries to join in their mission, using the following slogan and #tags as themes for short films (four minutes):

Slavery - Human Trafficking – Near YOU!




COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19 we have pushed back the deadline date of entry to mid-August 2021.

We hope this will help anyone struggling to work on their video during COVID-19 lockdown. We've also added some extra information on our FAQ page to help you work on your video remotely. See the FAQ page for more information.

COVID-19 potentially has significant negative implications on trafficking, and so we encourage you to make a video for our competition and help raise awareness around trafficking.
