The festival team are currently reviewing all projects. It is fantastic for us to see so many different themes from filmmakers & writers with different backgrounds & cultures.

A diverse mix of projects have come to our doors, from debut filmmakers/writers,professionals, award winners, students,have sent us a vast range of stories. Stories that will make you laugh, cry and keep you on the edge of your seat!

Every year it is beyond difficult to decide which projects get selected and this year is no exception as we have an immense body of work and talent to choose from.

The festival team would like to thank everyone who entered and we truly wish them the best of luck with their projects.

Final decisions will be announced by October 10th and a full programme of events will be online around mid October.
