Everyday Arias film festival specialises in opera and world theatre equivalents in short film format . We welcome short film submissions lasting no more than 20 minutes focusing on an aria or particular aspect of an opera from any period and tradition e.g Chinese opera, Noh, Kathakali etc

Filmmakers usually have the opportunity to screen their films more than once as we often collaborate with other festivals in conjunction with running our own at Close up Cinema in London.

In the past and present we have worked with Hinckley Fringe Opera Festival, Gallery at Republic London, Hyderbad Indywood Film Carnival, SET Chaatts cafe, Opera in the city festival 2018, Beeston Film Festival Cafe Roya

There will be awards for each category and an award for the Best in Festival winner.

Films must be no longer than 20 minutes long
Films must contain some aspect or element of opera or some music drama tradition i.e Chinese opera, Kathakali, Noh, Tazeeieh, etc .

    As an artist, I create projects that make a difference and shed light on subject matters deserving of more attentionĀ from society and from the filmmaking community. We are thrilled that the judges at Everyday Arias recognized the importance of including our film Essential Tremors. It's such an honor! This festival is organized and communicative, and I plan to submit all my upcoming films to this wonderful platform! Thanks so much!
