Call for submissions

Dear budding filmmakers, guerilla camera-wielders, underground directors and scriptwriters,

We are currently taking submissions for our series of EPIC short film evenings, to be screened at the Free Word Centre in Farringdon. The launch night for the event will be in mid-May, kicking off with a night of short films made by the Go Group in Georgia. You can find more information about the night here, and this page will be regularly updated with more information in the future.

If you have a short film or documentary that you would like to be screened at one of these nights, email us with a short 100 word summary of your film to intern1@indexoncensorship.org, or a link to your video online and details of any charities/organisations that you are affiliated with.

Please note that submissions MUST fit the subject of freedom of expression or censorship, dealing with issues or events from a unique perspective that is not often acknowledged. As we are a non-profit charity, we cannot offer any payment  for the artists, except a platform and opportunity for new filmmakers to screen their film to a large public audience.

In addition, as we would like these events to encourage talk and debate, it would be ideal if the filmmakers were willing to come down and attend the screenings themselves, giving a short talk or hosting a Q&A session afterwards.

If you would like to be updated with further EPIC short film events, please email intern1@indexoncensorship.org to be added to our mailing list where we will keep you updated with future events as well as other relevant information. Alternatively, you can subscribe to this blog, where we will be regularly updating it with new information about up and coming British and international short films and our events.
