The Festival has two separate strands. A Film Festival (for film submission please go to UK Film Festival - London page on FilmFreeway) and Three Script Competitions running as The UK Film Festival Script Competitions. (You can also enter Feature Scripts and 3 Minute Scripts on the Filmfreeway UK Film Festival - London platform but only till October)

This year we are running
1) The Feature Script Competition 2018/19
2) The 3 Minute Script Competition 2018
3) The 10 minute (or less) Screenplay Competition 2018
Final deadline for each is January 9, 2019.

We are proud to say that every year since the competition began in 2013 the winning short scripts have been produced or are currently in production. So far the resulting films have subsequently gone on to win awards at film festivals around the world. These awards include two Crystal Bears for Best Short Film at the Berlin Film Festival in consecutive years as well Best of Festival at the Aesthetica Film Festival and one was short listed for a BAFTA. These films have been Official Selection in 31 other festivals and received prestigious distribution deals.

The winning scripts will be passed to various production companies for possible production. It should be noted that every year since the shorts competition began the winning script have been optioned and gone into production: and three of the writers' resulting films have subsequently gone on to win film festivals around the world i.e. The Berlin Film Festival Crystal Bear for Best short Film - two years in a row as well as the Aesthetica Film Festival. One was short listed for a Bafta. The films have been Official Selection in 31 other festivals.

The Winning Feature Film Script will be nurtured by UK Film Festival and their Associates including InkTip to help give this script the best chance of production. Please note that we are looking for a feature film to co-produce to follow up our recent Crystal Bear wins at the 2014 and 2015 Berlin Film Festival.
