BIFF 2022: Amy Cutler performance

Submissions are open to films of every genre, in any length – including experimental, documentary, drama, comedy, expanded cinema, essay film, sci-fi, animation, music and low-budget work. The programme is selected by a team of artist-filmmakers, who have a particular focus on contemporary artists’ moving image work, but who are also looking for a diverse range of films in any genre.

The festival will comprise of several short film programmes, alongside mid-length features, live performance and expanded cinema, held over 3 days.

Entries are open to both the UK and international filmmakers with an entry fee of $9 per film submitted (early deadline). The festival is not-for-profit, with all revenue used to cover the costs of hosting the event at Braziers Park, and to supporting the residents and upkeep of the UK’s longest running intentional communites.

All entries must be in English or contain English subtitles.

Work-in-progress films are also welcome. In the spirit of inclusivity, there is no premiere status required, and the festival welcomes films made in any year.

Should your film be selected, you will be required to provide an H.264 screening file of your film (25fps), sent via downloadable link.

Filmmakers who have their work selected will be invited to Braziers Park to attend the festival and participate in a Q&A following their screening. Full accommodation or camping, plus meals, are provided to filmmakers by Braziers Park for the duration of the festival.

PLEASE NOTE: due to the volume of entries received, we cannot give individual feedback on submissions.
