CALL FOR ENTRIES
Once again we are accepting entries into the fifth Romford Film Festival.
In 2020 we were the first physical UK festival to return after the country exited lockdown due to Covid-19; screening over 190 features and shorts featuring premieres of Marcel Walz Blind, Lisa Ovies Puppet Killer, Nicole Potts Powerless in addition to 10 other World Premieres and 37 UK or European Premieres.
in 2021 our IMDb qualifying festival will run a full six day event that will culminate 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 2021 will again be showing over 100 features and shorts from 28th of April to 4th May with the red carpet Romford Film Festival Award ceremony on the Tuesday evening 4th May.
We look forward to seeing your work and wish you the very best of luck.
