The vision is to bring a wide selection of filmmakers from all around the UK for the weekend of a lifetime. Invitations will be sent to production companies. Your short film presentation will be on show with the possibility of a feature film offer from film makers seeking fresh, new talent. Student Film Festival Awards.co.uk will be judged equally. Our objective is to judge how well your ideas are communicated on screen.

Throughout the weekend filmmakers will have the opportunity to be interviewed about their film with the final footage being screened on Youtube using Vizitag mobile technology. Antony Thomas will present a lecture about documentaries and Chris Cook on the juiciness of independent filmmaking.

Deadline for your film submission is 20th of October 2009. There are three categories : Short Film – Animation Film – Documentary Film – Go to How To Enter.


Thomas Green

Is a young ambitious film editor, he recently graduated from Brighton Film School with a Diploma in Motion Picture, where he specialised in Post Production.

He is now working on his first Feature film Sleeper – “How to kill a vampire” Directed by Sean Simmons. Tom will be attending the awards in November to meet other people with a similar interest in film.


Wynette Muriel

Will be screening her new film The Honeymoon which she wrote and directed at the Brighton film school.
The Honeymoon is a short quirky but dark tale for those who have a fear of dying alone. Wynette is a keen film maker who has an interest in all fields of film making but has a wild imagination that keeps her dreaming to one day be a well known film director.


Dylan Spicer

Cowboys and Indians: Two Days in Deadwood looks at members of a historical re-enactment group at the mock Western town of Deadwood, and explores why they choose to get involved with this activity, and what effect it had on their life outside the society. Shot on a mixture on digital and 16mm, this post-modern documentary is in places funny, moving, but always fascinating. Director Dylan Spicer.
