We have five Film submission categories this year which are Animation, Schools & Groups aged 7 - 16,

We are delighted to introduce our inaugural Feature Screenplay Competition. We are seeking original, compelling and exciting feature screenplays between 1st February 2019 – 31st June 2019. The winner will receive a copy of Fade In, a Best Screenplay trophy and will be invited to the main event on Saturday 16th November to claim their prize.

Our selection panel will decide the winners of the catagories and awards will be presented on the night. The audience at the main event will also be able to participate in an online vote to determine the winner of our Audience Choice Award, which celebrates the best film shown at the festival.
