This is just a gentle reminder that Encounters International Film Festival’s Early bird submission prices end on Monday 31st May.  After this date the cost of DVD entries will rise from £20 to £25.

However, we are still offering filmmakers the opportunity to submit their films digitally to us for the reduced price of £15.  So far almost 70% of you are choosing to submit your films this way which not only reduces the costs for you the filmmaker but is also better for the environment.

We are also still offering reduced fees for multiple film entries with at least a 25% reduction for those submitting 2 films or more. Visit www.encounters-festival.org.uk for further information and submissions criteria or contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
