Each team will present two versions of their videos: 30 and 105 seconds long. The winning promo will be aired on the screens in Sofia metro and ground public transport. The trailer will be also shown during the festival before every screening. The script should represent the youthful, unorthodox, and international spirit of the festival. We see it as a full of humor piece on love for film and filmmaking.
Your stylistic choice can vary as far as your imagination and feel take you, like in the trailers of our partner festivals, films from which will be shown during Meetings of Young European Cinema – Sofia:
Curtas – Vila do Conde, Portugal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYaBgYEEckk

Idea for the script
We suggest the following script for your video, however encourage you to present your own story.
Two people having a conversation. One of them is retelling films as children do – disorderedly, passionately. The other is listening.
We see them walking through different places and times (most probably in their imagination).
One of them is characterised by some costume idiosyncrasy (carrying a cosmonaut helmet, for instance).
When one is telling a scene, the other is trying to imagine it and we see shots from films (of the selection).
The two end up in the middle of a set where film is being shot. They are urged to move away.
