Call for short films from North West Filmmakers
We are busy preparing Filmed Up, our second North West filmmakers night, and are looking for films under 20 minutes in duration, of any genre, old or new, to be screened at the event.
The deadline for submissions is Mon 7 May and the night will take place on Tue 15 June, in the Annexe at Cornerhouse.
This event is a great opportunity to showcase your filmmaking skills to a captive audience, meet other filmmakers, and also see if your film wins the audience award , which is voted for on the night. Plus, all selected filmmakers get a share of the box office takings which, depending on the number of films shown, might buy you a pint or two!
So if you are a filmmaker based in the North West and think your film fits the bill, we’d love to see your work!
All you need to do is fill in the submission form and send it to us with your DVD.
All films screened on the night will be selected by a panel of Cornerhouse audience members and we’ll let you know if your film made the cut at the beginning of June.
Eligibility criteria at a glance:
- made by filmmakers currently living in the North West
- under 20 minutes
- of any genre
- of any year
Practical aspects to remember:
You absolutely need to have cleared copyright of all external material you have used in your film (soundtrack, including credit music, video extracts etc.). We cannot screen films which have unauthorised use of material.
Your DVD must play on a standard DVD player. If the panel can’t watch it, they can’t consider it!
