| | York Independent Film Festival is now entering its second year - and we're now accepting entries. The festival is volunteer run, not-for-profit, and so is FREE to enter. The fest takes places over two days - 23 and 24 of February 2002 - at the University of York, in the City of York, England. The deadline for entries is the 12th of January 2002 - though the sooner entries arrive, the better. All entries will be considered by our selection panel, and awards are up for grabs for the best feature, short, animation and documentary and also for best in festival. The festival is open to the public (we aren't just showing films to students). Preview copies (for our selection panel) should be on PAL or NTSC VHS, and we can screen films in the following formats:
35mm, 16mm, PAL Beta, PAL DV.
Note that we CANNOT get PAL-NTSC conversions of beta/dv films done - the cost is prohibitive to us (convert one, you've gotta convert 'em all). We will also NOT screen films on VHS at the festival - the quality is too low for a paying audience, and really does not do justice to the film.
For more details and application forms, please visit our website (www.yorkfilmfestival.org) or email us (email@example.com).
| | Writer/director seeking crew for a couple of digital shorts to be made over the next two to three weeks. If you have your own equipment all the better. Unpaid work I'm afraid.
| | Do you have a script or treatment for a new documentary based in Northern England? Producer looking for new projects that already have TV commission or are likely to receive funding. Also, current shoots that need additional material, especially in Sheffield, Leeds, or even further north.
