Open for entries!

The next festival is set to return Friday 23 – Sunday 25 September 2011, and is currently seeking moving image works of all types - narrative and artist video, live action and animation, fiction and documentary, and dance on film – to screen as part of the Festival.

The Festival has a six-year history, screening over 350 individual works from 35 countries, including 40 UK and European premieres. Each event has attracted up to 10,000 audiences from across the UK to engage with screenings, events and installations in up to 20 different locations across Berwick-upon-Tweed – illuminating the whole town.

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival 2011: Once upon a Time…

Each year, the Festival is curated thematically, and this year ventures into the land of make-believe, exploring the enchantment – and the dark side – of the fairy tale on film. Through presenting the familiar stories, characters and imagery of folklore, the Festival re-presents and celebrates the art of story-telling on screen.

Please go to the Submissions page for the guidelines and online form. The Festival closes for entries on Friday 29 July 2011.
