Are you a budding Quentin Tarantino or James Cameron? Have a passion for technology which makes cities green – and not just in colour?

You could win $12,000 (£7,760) with a three-minute short film about an invention for urban spaces in tech firm Siemens’ latest competition, called Urban Ideas.

The rules demand your film’s story must include a “human hero”, adding: “This person can be anybody who benefits from the invention, or even the inventor himself.”

Previous winners of the prize fund which totals $40,000 have made films about urban farming, biking to work or using renewable energy.
