Encounters is now open for submissions, and is ready to welcome live-action filmmakers, animators and visual content creators to this top-notich Bristol film fest platform.
‘Simply put,’ says the organisers, ‘if you’re selected for competition you’re opening the door to the world’s most prestigious awards.’
On top of that, ‘aside from kudos and a handsome laurel for your short’, if your film gets to Encounters it could be in line for some very healthy cash prizes.
We’ve added them up and there’s â‚¬9,500 plus £2,000 on offer in all across a variety of prizes (we’re not going to speculate on the relative value of any currency come envelopeâ€”opening time).
Pop over to the Encounters site to find out just what gongs and cash are available (which as they say, are subject to change).
And here are the submission deadlines:
Friday 30 March 2018 -Early Bird Entry Deadline
Friday 18 May 2018 -Regular Entry Deadline
Friday 1 June 2018 -Final Late Entry Deadline
