Today, after some research into the entry fees of other film festivals around the world, we've realised that ours are a bit high, and made adjustments accordingly compared with a calculated average. Refunds will be sent out to those already entered. This mostly affects our Medium (7-15 min) and Long (15-20 min) film categories. While a few film festivals didn't actually accept films longer than ten minutes, we do acknowledge that on the whole, we were asking a bit much.

Committee Meeting Oct 2nd 2017

Posted on October 4, 2017 at 6:25 AM Comments comments (0)

A meeting of the committee was held on 2nd October where much was discussed, including lots of interesting and exciting developments regarding the future of the festival. However, what was also agreed upon was that we shouldn't give too much away too soon.
