A few days ago, we reported that LEGO is holding a LEGO Star Wars 25-Second Film Festival with some items in the Rewards Center for participating. We now have some more information on what LEGO is looking for with the video submissions. You have from now until April 22 to submit your entries.

Hello there.

This year is the 25th anniversary of LEGO® Star Wars™ (yes, it’s really been 25 years) and we’re going to spend it celebrating the fan community’s incredible creativity. We put out the sets, but it’s your imagination that makes LEGO Star Wars.

How are we celebrating fan creativity?

Introducing ‘The 25-Second Film Festival’.

We want to invite fans across the galaxy, like you, to submit any film in any style – stop motion brick films, hand-drawn films, films made with CGI etc – as long as it’s 25-seconds long and represents LEGO Star Wars sets and Minifigures.

Film-making masters are welcome, and creative padawans too; anyone with an idea is invited to bring it to life and submit. You can recreate your favourite Star Wars moments, or forge a new one with the LEGO Star Wars characters, places and ships you treasure – whatever shows off your love for the galaxy.

This is your blank canvas to tell your own LEGO Star Wars story, and The LEGO Group’s opportunity to celebrate the community’s creativity in the way it deserves to be celebrated.

Never tell me the odds details…

Submissions are open on LEGO.com/LSW-25 between March 1st and April 22nd. We encourage you to read the rules before making your film, so you stand the best chance of creating something that’ll be accepted. Films that don’t meet the guidelines won’t pass moderation and won’t be featured in the festival.

You’re invited to create something bespoke for the festival, or if you’ve got a previous creation that’d be a perfect fit, that’s welcome too.

The 25-Second Film Festival then launches on May 4th. Films that are featured will appear on the official LEGO YouTube channel or www.LEGO.com/LSW-25 between the May 4th and 25th.

Whilst this isn’t a competition and there won’t be any winners, you’ll get access to exclusive digital rewards through LEGO Insiders just for submitting!

So, what are we asking of you?

We’d hugely appreciate you spreading the word about The 25-Second Film Festival to your audience or community!

We’ve enclosed our launch film (warning: may cause popcorn cravings) to show how we’re kicking everything off and putting out the call for entries. Feel free to include it in your overage! On our anniversary page, you and fellow fans will find a series of 25-second films that we commissioned to get the ball rolling, made by a mix of studios, individual creators and AFOL filmmakers – all of whom are fans. They can be watched over at LEGO.com/LSW-25 (you’ll find some still from these enclosed too though).

And lastly, if you personally have an idea for a film, or something you made a while ago that’ll fit nicely into 25-seconds, we’d love for you to submit!

Thank you, and may the Force be with you…
