Anyone with a passion for film is being invited to submit short films for an international microfilm festival to be held in October when Nottingham becomes the UK’s Festival City.
The deadline for submission of short films for the second Nottingham International Microfilm Festival has been extended to Friday, July 15, to give students taking exams more time to enter.
The event, organised by Nottingham Screen Partnership, will showcase this relatively new art form and attract leading film and television professionals from Hollywood, Europe and China, where microfilms are already popular.
The free festival, from Thursday 20 to Saturday 22 October, will focus on branded entertainment and include screenings, discussions, presentations, workshops and industry launches.
The NSP Student Microfilm Competition for students at selected institutions in Europe, the USA and China will run alongside the festival.
Microfilms are online, promotional or short-form content, which can include creative shorts, music videos, adverts and corporate promotions. The competition categories are ‘Animation’, ‘Documentary’, ‘Fiction’ and ‘Non-fiction’.
Entries should be no longer than 10 minutes and can be submitted at www.nimfestival.com.
