About Electric December 2012

Now in its fourteenth year, Electric December is an annual short film competition for young people run by Watershed in Bristol, UK. 24 highly original short films have been selected to make up the online countdown calendar, which can be watched and enjoyed on this site. You could find yourself with the Clairvoyant, Mystic Maggie, laughing with the staff of Hotel Talk To The Hand or meeting Italian cycling super hero Mailman.

Once again Watershed has co-curated Electric December with young people from Bristol. The enthusiasm and hard work of BTEC media students from Fairfield High School and Redland Green has played a pivotal role in making this year's showcase a success. The students have been involved in re-designing and shooting photographs for this year's website, designing promotional materials, organising and hosting a high profile launch party, and taking part in the judging panel with the help of students of Stroud and Gloucester College, and St Bede's Catholic College, Bristol.
