Intermission International Film Festival is the 8th film festival held by Elerby Studios
Hosted at the amazing 1920s Regent Cinema in Blackpool. A proper old school cinema reconstructed a few years ago to its former glory our second festival at this amazing place.

The Festival in August 2022 is for all types of short films, music videos, documentaries, comedies, horrors..all types of films.
We love and accept films from all over the world!
We want to show a diverse range of films regardless of budget or date of release - so get those films sent over to us right away!
Check out our facebook page for the trailers and event information.

This is our 4th year so after the pandemic we are back with a new name and totally stunning location.

The Cinema for the event is the prestigious Regent Cinema in the heart of Blackpool. An amazing place to show your films the proper way. With amazing visual and sound - this place is the best way to see new Cinema - the old fashioned way.

Previous events have seen your films shown to the general public with a superb exciting night of films - with great feedback - and the audience is growing.

We treat the festival with a cinema feeling with adverts and trailers from filmmakers as well.

This event screening will be held on Saturday August 27th from 7pm onwards.
Tickets will be available soon.

A fantastic opportunity for all filmmakers - get your films seen by the general public - in the best way possible - and a great night for all.

We accept any genre of film.
And it does not matter when you completed it so no time frame. If you want to show it to an audience then submit!

We can only accept films up to 30 mins at length with any genre accepted (if the films go slightly over do not worry just around that timeframe would be great)
So if you are an award winning filmmaker with your latest release or it is your first production - send us your films!
We try and show as much of the films submitted as possible.

The audience always is filmlovers, filmmakers, Cast and Crew plus casting directors from around the UK. A great opportunity to show your work to the best.

We also invite film makers to send us an intro video of themselves (if you want to) and their film before the screening. It adds a great bit of interest to our audience.

There is a low entry early bird fee for this festival. This is to help film makers with their promotional budget as we know this can be costly.

All films selected will also be edited into a trailer to show off the event before the screenings.

Looking forward to watching your films!
Lee and Team

    Whilst I wasn't able to attend in person I received excellent communication throughout the process. The hosts really know what they are doing and programmed some really great films. Also has a good social media presence. Will definitely be submitting my future projects.
