Broadband provider Virgin Media has launched a new competition to discover budding filmmakers across the UK.

The Virgin Media Shorts competition offers new talent the chance to upload their movies to a website for the chance to win up to £30,000 of film funding and work with the company on their next production.

Filmmakers also have the chance to have their work seen by cinemagoers and subscribers to Virgin Media's range of broadband TV packages.

Actress Thandie Newton, who is helping to promote the scheme and acting as a judge, said: "I'm honoured to be part of the judging panel alongside industry greats and I'm excited to be helping unearth what could be the next big thing in British filmmaking."

Virgin Media recently confirmed it has launched its new V HD box, which is available to new and existing subscribers for a one-off fee of £49.

The Cisco-made set-top system is also 3D-ready.
