Our festival is looking for a selection of different films, we want to showcase talent in all areas of filmmaking and have four categories:- Feature Film, Short Film, Documentary and Animation. We don't mind the genre or the language and look forward to seeing films that show off a huge array of artistic talent from around the world. Each section will have it's own category for the awards, but which will come out on top to get Film of the Festival?  



Feature Film

We want strong stories and great visuals, but other than that... Anything goes!



Shorts have to be quick to engage and smart enough to leave the audience content after just a few minutes. Think you have one that ticks the boxes?



Have you a true story with great heart? Then we want to see it!



Whether it's heartwarming and emotional or a bit of fun, the effort that goes in to animation deserves our undivided attention in its own category.   Good luck to everyone, we can't wait to see your films!
