The International Film Competition is now OPEN. The closing date is 14 Feburary 2018. 

The theme for the 2018 festival is Beginnings, focusing specifically on children and young people, and we would encourage submissions that explore this theme. However, all films submitted are eligible to win an award. Winning films will be honoured at our International Film Awards ceremony, which takes place in May 2018.
