Launching in August, GlobeScreen Shorts Festival welcomes submissions from short filmmakers from across Europe and beyond! 6 shorts will be accepted for the festival. Participating directors will have the opportunity to win one of four awards in the inaugural year of the fest - 'best short', 'cinematography', ' sound', & 'editing'!





- £10: Submission fee!

- Each submitting short should be a maximum of 20 minutes in length. If you're unable to honour this length in your finished cut, please re-edit to the approved running time of this fest.

- Each qualifying film should be a narrative short - (i.e not a documentary or experimental project). Each submission may have sound (or no dialogue/sound), and be presented in either black & white or colour.

- Due to time constraints with our industry jury, please upload a 'digital screener' of your short, for consideration and provide a Vimeo link of the project, for access by our festival team and jury. If you are unable to provide a screener via Vimeo, please contact the festival for further guidance.

- Each short does not have to be a 'world premiere' (i.e previously not in competition or exhibited at any film festival, in years prior to 2020). However the short must not have been broadcast (or in any way distributed commercially to the viewing public) prior to submission to GlobeScreen Shorts.

- Each submitting filmmaker hereby warrants and guarantees that they legally own all copyrights to their work and the work of others, when submitting projects to GlobeScreen.

- If selected, participating filmmakers hereby also warrant and confirm that they, or their Producer(s), at their own expense, can provide a DCP (Digital Cinema Package) print of their entry, capable of digital projection.

- Selected filmmakers will be required to submit a bio, headshot, trailer, one sheet poster and director statement, accompanying their submission. Regular submissions may choose to include a trailer & poster, with their entry, although this is not mandatory.

- Non-English language films are permitted but must include subtitles in the final edit.

- GlobeScreen will not be providing any travel grants or stipends to filmmaker finalists, traveling to London, UK, for the festival. No exceptions! Sorry :(

Good luck and see you in London in August!
