The Showfilmfirst 30 Day Film Challenge is designed to get you talking about and discovering film.

Each day we will give you a category and you give us your best answer, post an image or clip from the film you’ve chosen, and then tell us why you have chosen this film.

The aim of the challenge is to help people discover more new movies. There’s so much choice out there and you can’t beat real, personal recommendations. This is your chance to champion your choices and introduce them to others, so they can enjoy them too.


Win Cinema Tickets

Each day, for the first 30 days the challenge is live, the SFF team will pick their favourite answer & comment, and give the writer two free cinema tickets. That’s 30 chances!

We will publish a selection of the best answers and comments live each day.

So what do I Have To Do?

1. First, ‘like’ our 30 Day Film Challenge Facebook page. (Remember to set it so that you receive notification of our latest posts).

2. We recommend you create a photo album titled ‘SFF 30 Day Film Challenge’. From Monday 13th July, 2015, we shall add a new category each day for 30 Days, but anyone can join at any time, just start from Day One. (If you want to just post the title of the film and why you’ve chosen it, without posting images, that’s fine too)

3. Each day, check out the category. Find an image – or a youtube clip – that illustrates your chosen film – or you can just post the title – and post it to the 30 Day Film Challenge Page or follow the category comment thread. Title it #SFF30Film – Day 1 (or 2, 3, etc) – then the category. Then comment about why you have chosen this movie. While you’re there, check out what other people are posting and give them a comment. And, if you watch a film based on someone’s recommendation, remember to come back and tell other members about that too.

4. Then, share the post on your own page, or on a friend’s page, to encourage them to join in.

Sharing is Caring

Please keep the conversation going. This is all about discovering movies, so please share across your social networks.

This is an organic thing so we’ll be adding new stuff and tweaking it to perfection as we go along. If you have any suggestions how we can improve the challenge, or have ideas for future categories, then drop us a line.

Please be nice

This is a supportive project. Please, please don’t post anything spammy, derogatory or downright nasty. Offensive comments will be removed.

Thanks for joining in, and enjoy your 30 Days of Film.
