Emergency Calls_10

That’s right, the deadline for submissions to the next Flatpack Film Festival, 6pm on Monday 22nd December 2014, is fast approaching. From today there are just two months left for you to be in with a chance of having your work shown at the next festival. As always the standard is high; we have already received some excellent shorts for consideration, so if you’re sitting on a cinematic sensation then send it in to us.

All successful submissions will be included in the programme for Flatpack no.9, which runs from 19-29 March 2015. As if that wasn’t enough, the film selected by the jury as the winner of the Short Film Award will bag its talented creator a £1000 cash prize!

In total there are 5 hotly contested awards for our 2015 festival, comprising:

  • the Short Film Award;
  • the WTF Award;
  • the Audience Award;
  • the Colour Box Award;
  • the Colour Box Audience Award.

Submissions should be under 25mins (if its longer, get in touch – [email protected]) and we accept all manner of film (including installations and performances). For full details see our submissions page.

In the meantime, why not check out winning submissions from the two previous festivals here: 2013, 2014.
