We are Latest TV, Northern Visions and Sheffield Live!, community, not-for-profit local TV channels in Brighton, Belfast and Sheffield. 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 in the UK!
Our forthcoming festival is for International Women's Day. We are celebrating female-identifying filmmakers and their stories!
Submissions are always free. As our channels are community-based and not-for-profit, we are unable to pay broadcasting fees, but what we offer our filmmakers is the opportunity to be seen by a much wider audience than at a conventional film festival! We pride ourselves in supporting the work of independent filmmakers by showcasing their work on local TV channels in the UK.
By submitting your film, you acknowledge that you are giving permission to Latest Visions to broadcast your film on local television channels in the U.K. and Northern Ireland during the duration of the festival, and to utilize still images and trailers from your film for non-commercial use in promoting the event.
