Arriving at a ‘gateway’ in the North of England, one young group are all on the brink of crossing into an uncertain future.

Details of upcoming screenings in 2019 coming soon.


A series of Gateways have appeared across the globe, all leading to a place people call ‘Point B’.

One farm worker, Andrei, is guarding one of the Gateways in the North of England where 6 young people have arrived, ready to cross over.

Contenders explores the nature of anonymous heroic acts from the younger generation, and how they are often, despite often criticised, the first to respond to a calling.
