​Linear International Film Festival is now in its second year. After enjoying an amazing first year in Todmorden, November 2019 we are back to celebrate another year of short films.

Linear is brought to you as a collaboration between De Profundis (Amanda Fleming) and Film Vault Presents (Andrew Green).

Named after the concept of the word Linear, always going forward, rather than the location, this opens it up to us hosting the festival at different locations around the UK.

This festival is open to the international community as long as the film has English subtitles and no longer than 20 mins long. We are open to new and student film makers and also existing ones.

We will be covered by press and reviewers, promotions, social media bloggers, all helping publicise the festival and the selected film makers, helping the festival grow in the coming years.

This years festival will be held at one of manchesters well known event locations, upstairs in the theatre at Gullivers, on the 17th oct 2020, times TBA.

Submission will open May 2020

Award certificates will be given out at the end of the night.

Laurels will be awarded to the officially selected, and winners

Up to 20 minutes long only, longer films will not be accepted in into this festival
No films made pre 2019 will be accepted

    We received a lovely welcome from Amanda and Andy and were delighted to accept the Best LGBT Film award for When Possible, Take a U-Turn. It was terrific to be involved in the inaugural Linear International Film Festival and sincerely hope it goes from strength to strength. We will definitely continue to submit our short films and hopefully attend this festival again in the future.

    It was an honour to have my short NEW MARS chosen for this year's festival - the NEW MARS team were thrilled to bits to also win BEST SCI-FI!
    Although I wasn't able to attend as currently filming - I have to say I was very impressed by how much time and energy the Linear IFF team put into making the event truly special. Great communication throughout the process, done with great warmth and care. They also went out of their way to bring along the Mayor and the press, which was an extra boost for the films and the filmmakers. Looking forward to attending next year. Thumbs up all round from me!

    A heart-warming, creative and very diverse festival, showcasing unique films from so many different genres and countries. Proud to have taken part in this filmmaking event that included not only screening and prizes, but a warm welcome, networking and opportunities for discussion
