East End Film Festival open call for submissions

Submissions are open for the East End Film Festival. Fiction, documentary, music, animation and experimental short or feature length films are accepted, which were completed after January 2011, and have not been released in the UK on any format.

The film festival can screen 35mm, PAL Digibeta and Beta SP formats, although DVDs may be played in exceptional circumstances. Submissions are preferred via Withoutabox, or on DVD. The festival has introduced a fee for submissions this year, of between £10–£35 depending on the length of the film and early or late applications, and residents of Tower Hamlets qualify for free submissions. Closing date is 24 February (members of Withoutabox have an extra week to submit entires). Full details here.
