Reel Life Data Film Competition


ARK's '2017 Reel Life Data competition' asked film makers to produce a short film (maximum of 3 minutes) based on findings from the 2013 Northern Ireland Life and Times survey data on attitudes to LGBT issues (http://www.ark.ac.uk/nilt/2013).

Film makers were free to use the data in whatever way they wished. They were also free to use any format, such as documentary, fiction, animation, discussion, vox pop, interviews, music video, game show. The more creative the better!

We were really impressed by the different ways in which film makers engaged with the data. Thank you to everyone who took part.
