Calling all filmmakers

St Neots Film Festival 2019 is now open for submissions

Do you have an idea for a short film? Would you like to see it screened at Cineworld? St Neots Film Festival is a celebration of local, national and international cinema, taking place at Cineworld St Neots on 6 and 7 November and Love’s Farm House on 8 November 2019. We are particularly keen to receive a submission from local filmmakers of all ages. The festival is divided into five categories: Children (for directors aged 12 and under), Teenage (13-19), Fiction, Documentary, and Animation. The best Children’s film will win £100 of Cineworld vouchers. All other category winners will receive £100 cash.

Fiction, Documentary and Animation submissions carry a $5 admin fee. Teenage and Children’s entries are free. Films must be no more than 20 minutes and all original work. We are accepting submissions from 1 June to 31 August. Full terms and conditions here. Never made a film before? Head to our tutorials page for tips on getting started with film production. You don’t need lots of money or experience — just a great idea, a bit of teamwork and some perseverance. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
