Nintendo announce partnership with British Film Institute

Nintendo have announced a unique cultural partnership and short film-making competition with the BFI (British Film Institute).

Using the 3D video recorder built in to the Nintendo 3DS, owners are encouraged to create short films that capture the imagination whilst showcasing the still-evolving art of 3D videography.

The winner will have their work shown to some of the most prominent people in the film industry at the Nintendo Gala screening which is to be held at the 56th BFI London Film Festival In Partnership With American Express in October later this year.

Alongside this, Nintendo will also work with the BFI on a number of new 3D content projects, which will be announced in due course.

“We are extremely excited to be working with the BFI to provide a platform for future 3D film-making talent to showcase their work,” comments Nintendo UK Managing Director David Yarnton.

BFI Chief Executive, Amanda Nevill added “The priority for the BFI is all about the future – supporting new ideas and innovative thinking – which is why we are so thrilled to enter into this new partnership with Nintendo, an organisation at the forefront of the games industry.”
