|Official Bricks in Motion competitions|
The Past and Future Contest was a brickfilming competition being hosted by Benjamin Ely on Bricks in Motion in 2019. It is the ninth official Bricks in Motion summer contest, following the Movie Magic Contest in 2018, and the first hosted by Ely, who had became the main Bricks in Motion administrator in 2018 (and had provided the theme for the Movie Magic Contest).
Following the relatively lower turnout for the previous year's Bricks in Motion summer contest Movie Magic, which featured a more complex theme, the Past and Future Contest returned to a broader, story-based theme. It was announced by Benjamin Ely on July 8, and had a deadline of September 2. This gave it a shorter running time than previous BiM summer contests, which had the benefit of it not overlapping with the Brickfilm Rapidly All Week Long Contest in June. The contest received 23 entries, returning to a more regular entry number for summer contests.

Judging and prizes Edit
The contest was judged by a panel consisting of Benjamin Ely, Seán Willis, and Rachel Dew. Like the preceding Bricks in Motion Summer contests, no formal set of judging criteria was used, but consideration was given to the world created within the film, originality, story, and creative interpretation of the theme.
Prizes were awarded to the top three placing entrants in a prize pool format. The three prizes available were a copy of Dragonframe 4 including Bluetooth controller, a Brickstuff Pico LED light board starter kit, and a set of Minifig.me's Phonetic Custom Printed Heads for Animation.
