Submissions for our 2017 Festival have now closed. Thanks to all our filmmakers who have submitted their work – without your participation we wouldn’t have a Festival!
If you submitted a film, you will be notified whether or not it will be included in our 2017 Festival in due course.
Being filmmakers ourselves, we are no strangers to rejection. Getting that generic ‘we regret to inform you…’ email in your inbox is a crappy feeling. Being on the other side of the fence, we see that when a movie doesn’t make the cut it really doesn’t mean it’s a bad movie. Only a handful of films will make the In Competition selection. We strive to make the selection process as democratic as possible by having a big Selection Panel scoring on a marks-out-of-ten points system. The films with the highest marks get into our In Competition and Out-of-Competition slots. This process means that a lot of cool films won’t be shown. If you’ve made one of these films, don’t be disheartened. Keep doing all you can to get your work out there.
Submissions will re-open in September.
