Adapt or die. That's the motto for 2017 and the future. The plan is to provide screenings to various charities throughout the year. It is hoped this will encourage a wider audience to view the films submitted and attract smaller charities to get involved. Each film screened will receive audience feedback (which will be fed back to the film makers and will only be made public with permission.) At the end of the year we will announce the highest scoring films in each category.
As with previous festivals, all ticket money will be taken directly by the charities. We will of course be promoting and updating screenings as we go via twitter and facebook.
There are awards - oh yes there are!!! Audience votes from across the 4 venues give us an average for each film and we award accordingly. No cash unfortunately as we give it all to charity.
Films must be in English or Subtitled in English. Subtitles must be burnt onto video track - Sorry but it makes it a pain otherwise.
No pornographic or illegal films.
