We accept submissions from all over the world. Some general advice for all of our candidates:

  • Keep it short (under 20 minutes would be ideal but we can make exceptions).
  • Broad is good: any genres, styles, topics ­ narrative, experimental, music videos, documentaries, animation are all welcome.
  • Your work may be screened at ANY of our future events in London, Berlin or Tokyo and it may take us some time before getting back to you.
    We will keep all films, contact details and passwords confidential.
