Recently, we announced that we would be running a small scheme for up and coming young film-makers to develop a 30 second film on anti-Muslim prejudice for TELL MAMA. We will use the film to develop interest in this area and which will be promoted through social media and through our web-site which has, on average, between 10,000 – 15,000 unique users coming through to it. About 90% of these are people based in the United Kingdom.

What we are looking for:

  • We will help promote the work of the film-maker by promoting the short film, though the film should be 30 seconds in length, of high quality for on-line use and be based on highlighting anti-Muslim hatred or prejudice. It should therefore be used to raise awareness and should also highlight the contact details of TELL MAMA at the end of the video, which we will provide.
  • TELL MAMA will provide £500 to the successful applicant as a budget for the film, as per the terms of the agreement which will be provided to the successful applicant.
  • Applicants should have experience of film-making and may be students who are in their second or third year of a media or film-making qualification in a recognised UK educational institution.
  • If you are interested in applying to this scheme, a covering letter with a CV and with examples of previous film work undertaken should be e-mailed to Also, we suggest that ideas for the short film should be listed in the covering letter and this is essential. We would like to assess the ideas that are proposed in line with the experience of the applicant. Applicants who do not propose their ideas for the short film will not be considered.
  • This scheme closes on the 28th of February and applications should be received by 5 pm at the latest. (Only one film-maker will be chosen at the end of this process).
