Over 600 filmmakers pitched their ideas to Nokia Shorts 2011. From documentary and comedy to post-apocalyptic westerns, the ideas poured in! From all the pitches that came in eight were shortlisted, the filmmakers were then each given £5,000 and two Nokia N8s to produce their vision.

This Saturday the results will be premiered in the debating hall at Teviot where one winner will be chosen by a judging panel and walk away with a £10,000 grand prize!
