MOFILM hosts an evening of football fun.


As many of you know, 2014 is a huge year for football and also a big opportunity for our filmmaker community to find and tell inspiring stories surrounding football.

At MOFILM we’re really proud to work with some of the world’s biggest brands, one of which is Chevrolet. Since announcing their sponsorship deal with Manchester United, MOFILM’s work with Chevrolet has been influenced by football. This has seen us run three football related contests since October 2013 as well as having two more currently live on for both Cannes and São Paulo. So if you haven’t already done so, download the briefs, apply for a production grant and you could see yourself in the South of France or at the World Cup this summer.

So last night we had the chance to invite our London based filmmaker community for a night of football fun, drinks and pizza. We took over Far Rockaway Bar in Shoreditch – the heart of London’s creative district – showcased some of our recent Chevrolet football films, and watched Manchester United defeat Olympiacos 3-0 on the evening (3-2 on aggregate), seeing them progress to the quarter finals of the Champions league.

One of the films we showcased last night was by London-based director duo Ben Perry and Duncan Christie. Ben and Duncan submitted their first MOFILM contest entry back in October 2013 and since then they have been commissioned by Chevrolet as part of our MOFILM Pro model to fly to Indonesia and create a 2-part film highlighting how football can help combat the stigma surrounding HIV/Aids. This film was used by Chevrolet to launch their ‘What do you #PlayFor?‘ digital and social campaign last week. If you haven’t already done so, watch it here:

So to all that came down last night, thank you. It was great to see so many friends and to welcome so many new friends into the world of MOFILM. Events like last night reaffirms this notion: MOFILM isn’t just a crowd… it’s a community.
