Ffwrnes Theatre and Broadside have teamed up to launch Ffwrnes Ffilm Ffest 2014. It will be held at the Ffwrnes on Saturday 4th October from 12 midday-10pm and is an opportunity for new and fresh filmmakers to engage with new audiences and fellow filmmakers. Ffwrnes Ffilm Ffest provides a platform for local, national and international filmmakers to exhibit their work and connect with fellow filmmakers. Ffwrnes Ffilm Ffest promises to be a great day out and opportunity for filmmakers and public audiences alike to view a broad spectrum of films from fiction and documentaries to animated shorts.
The deadline for submissions is 4pm Monday 22nd September. Films must be no longer than 20 minutes and the filmmaker must have no previous professional creative credits (eg. Writer or Director). Submission forms can be found below or our Facebook page www.facebook.com/TheatrauSirGar, where full terms and conditions can be found.
There will be two awards presented on the day, one judged by audience vote and one judged by multi BAFTA nominated, award-winning director and screenwrite Philip John . Ffwrnes Ffilm Ffest is all about creativity and potential, films will not only be judged on technical aspects but judges will be looking for strong elements of originality and a film that captivates them. Films can be any genre and we are aiming to showcase a wide variety of work.
Our deliberate policy of free entry for filmmakers and public makes the Ffwrnes Ffilm Ffest really accessible for all. Audience members are advised to obtain their free tickets in advance as audience capacity for screenings is strictly limited.
The day will consist of film screenings, master classes with industry professionals including Clare Sturges and Philip John, a live Q&A, a meet and greet with fellow filmmakers and an awards presentation. A full program will be released closer to the event.
