We are Northern Visions and Latest TV, community, not-for-profit local TV channels in Belfast and Brighton. We organise film festivals, both as live events in our venues when possible, but mostly, on our TV channels; so when you are part of our festival, you get your film on local TV stations!

Our forthcoming festival is for International Women's Day on 8th March. We are looking for films made by, and about, female-identifying individuals.

PLEASE NOTE: films that contain sexual violence will NOT be considered.

Due to COVID-19, we haven't been able to host live events yet; but we're very hopeful that this will change. We are currently planning live events for this edition (subject to changes due to government guidelines). Whatever happens, our TV festival will definitely take place. There is also a high possibility that other local TV channels in the country will screen our festival, too. Both Northern Visions and Latest TV will livestream the festival on their website.

PLEASE NOTE: as the channels are community-based and not-for-profit, we are unable to pay broadcasting fees.
