St Andrews Film Festival aims to bring together student filmmaking voices from all around the UK. We believe in student creativity and we would like to provide students with a platform to submit their work and an opportunity to meet with like-minded people. The Festival will run during the last weekend of April and will feature short films and talks from industry professionals. The Award Ceremony will take place on Sunday night over a wine reception and networking opportunities.

    A really great festival that is run by people who appreciate film and know a great deal about it. This isn't just a showcase of great films; there is an entire day/evening dedicated to film and film-making The organizers are very friendly and communication is fast and to the point. I would highly recommend submitting your film for the networking opportunities and location of the festival.
