Established in 2017, Braziers Mini Indi Film Festival offers an opportunity for independent filmmakers to show their short film to an enthusiastic audience, in a unique, historical setting. We accept short films (under 30 mins.) in any genre, including experimental, documentary, animation, comedy, fiction. The festival takes place on the Braziers Park estate, home to the annual Supernormal Festival. Films are projected to audiences in a cinema-style environment, with screenings taking place inside the gothic manor house, a large barn, and in custom-built outdoor structures. Screening are followed by group discussion and Q&A with attending film-makers.
Braziers Park is a community, a residential college and an architectural treasure hidden deep in the south Oxfordshire countryside in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. It was founded in 1950 as a progressive educational trust, and is the UK's longest-running 'intentional community'. Braziers' community members share responsibility for running the mansion house (a Grade II* listed building), 55 acres of land, organic kitchen garden and livestock, facilitating courses and organising events assisted by visiting volunteers from around the world.
Submissions are open to short films from every genre - we accept drama, comedy, horror, sci-fi, documentary, experimental, animation, music and low-budget work. The programme is selected by a team of artist-filmmakers, who have a particular focus on contemporary artists' moving image works, but who are looking for a diverse range of films in all genres.
