Due March 25th, 2019 - Created in 1986, Nespresso pioneered the portioned coffee segment and has been continuously innovating to deliver the highest quality coffee experiences to consumers worldwide.

From the very beginning, the Nespresso concept has revolutionized the way people enjoy their coffee and has shaped our global coffee culture. But none of this would be possible without extraordinary talent.

All of their sponsorship activities focus on talent – being either emerging or established talents. Talents that inspire, educate, mentor & engage.

Nespresso has supported cinema and dynamic storytelling as part of our longstanding partnership with Film Festivals (12 in total in the world), which is a natural fit for them as they seek to support events that focus on passion and expertise, just as they do at Nespresso. Through these partnerships, they also aim to support up and coming filmmakers in their forthcoming projects.

Nespresso is excited to continue Nespresso Talents in 2019 and see a bright future ahead in the years to come.

This year, they can bring together people’s passion for film, food culture and Nespresso’s brand purpose to “inspire tasteful and meaningful living” through the fourth edition of our Nespresso Talents short film contest.

Nespresso wants you to tell stories about food - its culture, its influence, and what it means to us. Food is so much more than what’s on our plate. It is colors, smells, life. It is a notebook scribbled with recipe ideas. It is the memory of a place, a moment, a very special day. It is a public market, a secret address, a rooftop garden nourished with coffee compost, where you grow your fresh vegetables…

They challenge filmmakers to share what food means to you.

“WE ARE WHAT WE EAT”

Through food you...explore the world, you experience diversity, you work, you experiment, you share, you take care of yourself, you reward yourself, you get to know nature and seasons, you connect with the earth, you teach your children.

Share experiences, knowledge, innovations, expertise, and connections related to food. Every story is worth telling, so go tell your own with Nespresso Talents 2019.

This contest highlights the stories about food and everything that encompasses it - the ordinary, the extraordinary. Show the experiences that people have with food, however big or small.

Your story can take place in your home, in your neighborhood, anywhere. It can feature your friends, family, or complete strangers. It can be a documentary or a fictional world of your own creation. It can be animated or filmed.

The only rule is that it must be shot in 9:16.

In this media driven world, more and more people are watching vertical video, so challenge yourself with this new format and see what you can create.

You create, they plant :
Each video submitted in the Nespresso Talents 2019 contest will lead to the planting of a tree in Colombia by Nespresso. Why? Because these trees will contribute to a large scale initiative transitioning coffee smallholders into organic coffee production. We are what we eat, aren’t we?

Entries should be 3 minutes max.
