Announcing Pepsi Films

One year, Seven Competitions, 21 Refreshing Themes

Pepsi Films is on a mission to refresh the world in fun and unexpected ways, 60 seconds at a time. We want to find and work with the world’s best young filmmakers and give you the opportunity to have amazing, career and life changing experiences.

Over the next year, we will be working with MOFILM to host seven global competitions, together our aim is to find breakthrough talent that is creating sensational work and then to help you develop your skills along with your career.

We’re kicking off with a competition that could see your work premiered at the world’s biggest mobile conference in Barcelona. Next we’ll be heading to TriBeCa, then Poland, Shanghai, Rio, Rome and India. Each competition will culminate with three winners being given the opportunity to attend an international film festival, where their entries will be judged by a high profile jury and an overall winner announced.

It’s not just about the three winners, although they will receive rich rewards and experiences. Any filmmaker that catches our eye will have the opportunity to become part of the Pepsi family of the future; collaborating and working with us on creative content and storytelling. We want to build an enduring and unique partnership to help the new generation flourish.

We’ll be announcing details of our first competition, which could see your work premiered at the world’s biggest mobile conference soon.
