Virgin Atlantic, one of the world’s biggest passenger carriers, has announced that it is to collaborate with the National Film and Television School (NFTS) to showcase new film-making talent on-board its flights in its 2008 Film Festival in the Sky.

According to Travel Daily News, the airliner will show nine short films made on in-flight entertainment systems by NFTS graduates.

The top three films as voted for by passengers will then be assessed by a panel and the overall winner will receive two return flights on Virgin Atlantic.

Lysette Gauna, creative director for Virgin Atlantic, said: “Virgin Atlantic has a reputation for award-winning in-flight entertainment.

“This venture not only gives our passengers the opportunity to view the very best in new film-making but also gives Virgin Atlantic the chance to support new film making talent – we wish them all the very best of luck!”

Virgin offers trips to a number of destinations worldwide, but specialises in flights to Sydney, Hong Kong and New York.
