Join us from the comfort of your own home for the World Premiere Online of Impact50. Nearly 1,000 filmmakers, writers and creatives have already signed up and we will also be running this through a Facebook page so we can have chat…

 

Tickets are free but you can make a contribution – 100% of all revenue will be used on Festival Submissions to continue to platform the talent involved. We will also make the film available online to watch for 48 hours after the premiere before taking it down so that we do not jeopardise our festival run.

 

We look forward to celebrating with you on the digital red carpet!

Impact 50 Latest Updates

What did the audience think at the online premiere of Impact50?

Last Saturday we hosted the private online premiere of Impact50… At first I thought turnout was low as the softeware reported only 35 people were watching. That turned out to be 35 people who were logged into their accounts on YouTube at the time! When we got the numbers back from Youtube we discoved 2,400 people actually watched. AMAZING! I took some feedback direct from the WhatsApp chat and also asked for people to share

Looks like I might be getting more than one film premiere this year, by Lynn Robertson Hay

I fully expected that the first project I’d tell you about would be my film  BRAVE THE DARK, starring Jared Harris, which shot in the States last year – but another project has leap-frogged over it. And amazingly, it’s another feature film. After trying to break into screenwriting since I first turned professional with my theatre adaptations exactly 30 years ago, it really does seem as if I might have two films coming out this

So it’s official! Impact50 has broken TWO world records!

We have smashed our own pervious record on ‘50 Kisses’ with 67 screenwriters on The Impact, and beaten the film, The Owner, which had 25 directors. Impact50 has 40! No we are not registered with Guinness as they have changed the way they do things and it would cost somewhere between £5k and £10k to have it authenticated and registered. It seems that new management has taken over and they wish to leverage their brand

Behind The Scenes Shooting The President

What Judges Said About The Scripts

‘I admired all fifty five of the winning screenplays enormously and it is practically impossible to pick one favourite.’
Ted Tally, Impact50 screenplay judge and
Oscar Winner for ‘Silence Of The Lambs’

‘My favourite was actually perhaps the simplest one: MORE. i like the simplicity and clean emotionality of the storytelling, and how we all turn to children in moments of fear. It felt real and honest and like it packed a lot of emotion into so little time.’
Simon Kinberg, Impact50 Judge and Screenwriter / Producer ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

‘He Who Is Without Sin had a great twist as well as a mini-redemption arc, masterfully-fit into such a short amount of screen time.’
Nicole Perlman, Impact 50 judge and
Screenwriter ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

What writers and filmmakers say about Create50 and past projects...

‘50 Kisses’ opened the doors for my first time exhibiting a film in a festival, the first time going through an entire creative process, the first time people looking at me like I could really be a filmmaker. But more than this, showed me what we can achieve if we join forces and work toward our goals.
Carolina Rodrigues, Filmmaker (Brazil)

‘It has been amazing to be part of something so global. As a result of ‘50 Kisses’ I have met and collaborated with filmmakers, screenwriters, producers and agents from around the globe.’
Jo Buckman, Screenwriter (America)

 

‘After I put my film entry up on the ‘50 Kisses’ website I got all this wonderful and constructive feedback from other ‘50 Kisses’ filmmakers and I could then re-edit and improve the film before the deadlines closed. Over the 2 years of the project I have met so many other filmmakers, actors and writers in the 50K community and it’s spun off into so many other projects.’
Phil Peel, Filmmaker (UK)

‘The breadth of opportunities available are vast if you’re willing to accept the challenge. I was part of a team distributing ’50 Kisses’ commercially which, as a writer, was invaluable in understanding audience, the importance of concept and how a film is marketed. It will certainly effect how I view my own writing projects going forward.’
Tracey Flynn, Screenwriter, ‘50 Kisses’ (UK)
