Be a star on Norwich's Big Screen

Big Screen arrives in Norwich

The Norwich Big Screen, overlooking Chapelfield Plain, is hungry for content created in Norfolk to be showcased to thousands of people.

If you have a film, animation or photographs you'd like to share with Norfolk, get in touch.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for local artists, community groups and projects to showcase their work," said Becky Betts, Big Screen producer.

If you've got a great idea, we'd love to hear from you," she added.

All submissions will be considered on merit, but the screen cannot show commercial advertisements, hard-hitting campaign led content or films that include music without copyright clearance.

"We can accept material delivered on DV tape, DVD and as picture jpgs - but we cannot screen content built as a Powerpoint presentation," said Becky.

Screen history

During the summer of 2008, a screen measuring 25ft square was erected at Chapelfield Plain in Norwich.

The giant screen showcases a range of material made by local students, community groups, charities, amateur filmmakers and festivals.

The purpose of the screen's unveiling in Norwich is to help reflect the life of the local community, leading up to the 2012 Olympics.

The initiative is a partnership between Norwich City Council, the BBC and the London Organising Committee For The Olympic Games (LOCOG).

The Big Screen has already played host to a number of high profile events.

In August 2008, Norwich City Council arranged street performers outside the Big Screen, to mark the handover of the Olympic torch from Beijing to London.

In January 2009, crowds again gathered at the Big Screen to watch the inauguration of Barack Obama, as he became the 44th President of the United States.

The Big Screens are located in major cities around the UK.

The BBC also runs a touring screen during the summer that travels all over the UK to events and urban spaces.
