The Challenge

We want to see great films – it doesn’t matter what your budget is or what genre you’re working in. The competition is open to anyone from anywhere in the world, and entry is absolutely free – but there is ONE caveat: your film MUST be 90 seconds or less in duration.

If your films are longer than 90 seconds, you can still enter your film directly into Encounters instead.

Deadline for entries: Mon 2 July 2018, 5.00pm
