Thurrock International Film Festival is the largest growing international film festival in the UK. In 2015 it will return for it’s fourth year and is now looking for filmmakers to enter their films to it’s signature short film competition.
Anyone can enter a short film to one of seven categories. The deadline for this year is June 1st, the entry fee is just £5 for students and Under 18s and £10 for regular submissions to other categories. Selected films will be screened at the festival in October to an international audience. There are trophies and professional software on offer as prizes, nominated films will also be seen by a panel of celebrity judges and industry professionals which in previous years has included Brian Blessed, Evan Peters, Dean DeBlois and Frances Fisher among others.
In 2015, the Under 18 category has an added bonus. The MMBF Trust have sponsored the award and are offering the winning young filmmaker an additional cash prize, along with opportunities to work and visit renowned film studios and festivals across Europe.
