Don't get LockDown Fever! Use That Negative Energy & Time To Make A Film! (3 Mins max!)

Think you could be the next Quentin Tarantino? Do you want to find out if you could be as good as Kathryn Bigelow, write characters with the skill of Scorsese, or give a performance to challenge Joaquin Phoenix? Maybe comedy is your bag and have the next Cornetto trilogy in you? Whatever you love about cinema and if you’ve never made a film, then now’s the time.

Use that lock-down energy.

Get your phone out.

And express yourself through the greatest media of all…FILM.

Whether you’re a pro shooting on an Alexa, an amateur shooting on their phone, young, old, middle-aged…we want to see what you can make of todays’ challenging times. Comedy, drama, horror, crime, sci-fi, documentary, whatever is your thing we want to see it.

So. If you always thought you’ve had that ‘one film in you’, then get to it and get your camera out.

What are you waiting for?

    It was an honor to be selected for the LockDown Film Festival, and to show with a group of fantastic storytellers. I commend the fest organizers for producing this event with such precision, professionalism, and passion - during these difficult times. Thank you so much for the opportunity, and I recommend this festival and their team without hesitation. Cheers!

    In the times of corona? and lock downs all over the globe, Britflicks took upon themselves to create a wonderful platform for short films. be it amateur filmmakers or professionals, we all stayed at home, and had similar conditions.
