Inntravel Short Film Awards return for a third year!


Inntravel Short Film Awards return for a third year!

We are delighted to once again be working with independent holiday company Inntravel to bring the Inntravel Short Film Awards to Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival for the third successive year.

All artist and filmmakers who submit work that is under twenty minutes will have their work considered for both the Festival programme and the Inntravel Short Film Awards. The awards are a fantastic platform to showcase and celebrate the short form work being created across the UK and internationally and will be judged by a panel of industry figures and experts.

The first confirmed member of the jury is Beatrice Gibson, an award-winning artist who has twice been the recipient of the Tiger Award for Short Film at the International Film Festival Rotterdam; in 2009 for A Necessary Music and 2013 for The Tiger's Mind. In 2013 she was shortlisted for The Jarman Award for artists' film and The Whitechapel Gallery Max Mara Art Prize for Women.

In 2014, Roy Dib picked up the award for Best Short Film which is accompanied by a prize of £750 (€1000) for his entry Mondial 2010. Two other jury members, yet to be confirmed, will join Beatrice in selecting this years winner.

Steve Jack, Communications Manager at Inntravel said: “As specialists in self-guided, independent travel, Inntravel were proud to be part of the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival for the first time in 2013, and are delighted to be continuing our involvement for the third year. By sponsoring the Short Film Competition, we hope to play our part in helping to bring fresh and creative talent to a receptive and independently minded audience. We wish all entrants the very best of luck.”

Artists and filmmakers are welcome to submit moving image works of all types and lengths, in response to the theme, ‘Fact or Fiction’. Before 1st June 2015, entrants can take advantage of an Early Bird reduced entry fee of £10 for short films and £20 for feature length films. The final deadline for submissions is Wednesday 1st July 2015.
