CALL FOR ENTRIES

Once again we are accepting entries into the fourth Romford Film Festival. In 2019 we saw an amazing 100 films screened over a full five day event that finished with 14 awards being presented to filmmakers from across the world. Our screens vary in size from 120 seats to 350, in a purpose built mulitiplex. The event is held in the third largest retail district in London, at Premiere Cinemas on the third floor of the Mercury Shopping Centre.

Romford 2020 will again be showing over 100 features and shorts from 6th to 11th May with the red carpet Romford Film Festival Award ceremony on the Monday evening 11th May.

We look forward to seeing your work and wish you the very best of luck.

    We really enjoyed ourselves at Romford Film Festival. We were lucky enough to have our film 'The Little Count' selected, nominated and then chosen as winner of Best Documentary. We thought the communication and the hospitality was excellent. Romford Film Festival are huge indie film supporters so if you have an interesting story to tell, please don't hesitate to submit your next project to them. We hope our paths cross again and keep up the great work Romford Film Festival.
