SCREENTEST: THE UK’S NATIONAL STUDENT FILM FESTIVAL was founded at Bristol University in 2004 and relocated to London in 2011 where we enjoyed another 5 brilliant years at London Southbank University. Now we live at the University of Greenwich.
The Festival is held annually over a weekend in Autumn (October 16 - October 18) and features a programme of not only over 100 student-made short films but also talks, workshops and bespoke screenings from a range of film industry organisations, including BAFTA and The BFI. The weekend’s highlight (aside from every single one of our superb films!) is our Awards ceremony, held on the Sunday evening, celebrating the best of student filmmaking from all over the UK.
2020 will be Screentest's 16th anniversary, making it the longest-running fest of its kind – which is all rather exciting but we don’t have time to stop and think about it! So have a browse of our website, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and most importantly buy a ticket and come on down to our Festival, where we can promise an exciting and eclectic programme of films you won’t see anywhere else.
Every year we create categories based on the types of submissions we receive. Industry professionals then judge these categories and the winner receives our Testie trophy.
