Our patron Michael Sheen, the actor, is backing the competition. He said: “When you’re writing about film, you’re never wrong.
“It doesn’t matter whether you liked the film, or hated it, preferred some characters to others or analysed it scene-by-scene – we want to hear your thoughts.
“So please get reviewing and make your voice heard.”
Reviews must be up to 250 words in length.

Filmclub is an education charity that helps parents, teachers and pupils set up film clubs for young people to watch, discuss and review films from across the world and over 100 years of cinema.
Patrons include film-
maker Mike Leigh and actors Emma Thompson and Michael Sheen.
Free to all state schools, Filmclub is simple and fun, and enables you to discover and share films you would never normally see.
There are thousands to choose from, available free to order via the website
and delivered direct to member schools by partner, LoveFilm.
Writing reviews for the Filmclub website, with weekly prizes awarded for the best ones, is a popular activity that, research shows, helps boost members’ literacy and critical skills.
Joining Filmclub will also enable you to learn about the industry by taking part in live webcasts with film-makers, enter competitions, apply for the charity’s talent development scheme and much more.
