After a successful Summer event (Online) The festival has now returned for its Winter Season (Also an online event due to the year 2020)

Still primarily focused on UK film (short and feature length) but also of course open to International Independent Films & we still plan to take the festival from virtual to actual once the world settles down,

Our Festival Director once again is Stuart Bannerman, Publicist, Podcaster & Convention Panel Host and also in the process of making his own movies whilst running the award winning FromPage2Screen brand and Stuart is once again also part of the judging panel & continues to help publicize film & filmmakers for nearly a decade through various social media channels as well as through podcasting, his website, & the many interview films and live event panels he has hosted. This year Stuart has been covering several worldwide festivals, all from the comfort of his home office.

Each award winner will receive a digital certificate (We are still in the process of working with a trophy company for those who would also like a physical trophy)

Winners will also be given the option of appearing on the Spending Time With podcast (hosted by the events Festival Director to talk about their creative life and their projects. This spin off podcast is part of the FromPage2Screen Podcast series which has run for nearly a decade. In our Summer event, we launched the show with filmmaker Trevor Hayward who came on board to talk not only about his current film, but also how he makes his movies.
