Film submissions and prizes

We encourage all filmmakers to enter into our festival!

You can submit into our main categories to win the Best Film Award.

We will screen the top 10 films in the Best Film category  at our annual screening event in 2024. 

A cash prize of £750 will be awarded to the film that wins the Best Film award and £250 will be awarded to the runner up.


We also have a variety of genre and technical categories that you can enter and we will screen the winners online in the run up to our annual event and each winner will receive a laurel.
