Introduction to the film festival

Greetings Filmmakers Submissions are now open for the next UK Seasonal Short Film Festival. A US$100 Audience Favourite prize will be awarded to the most popular film of the festival. Ours is a seasonal festival that screens fantastic films in various cities around the United Kingdom. This season we are in the home of the largest arts festival in the world Edinburgh, Scotland. It is curated by WWCSFF Film Festivals, the same team that produces the London-X4 Seasonal Short Film Festival, the London-Worldwide Comedy Short Film Festival and the Asia South East-Short Film Festival. The directors of the festival are filmmakers, performers and marketers who have been involved in the UK media industry for over 15 years. Its a great pleasure to be able to screen rising talents and their work and to see audiences appreciate their output. We also endeavour to help our officially selected films gain wider notice within the industry at large. Our festival will give audiences around the United Kingdom a chance to see the wide variety of fantastic short films that are being produced around the world. We accept any genre from drama to action to horror to documentary to comedy to animation and we prize originality above all. We also offer awards for the individual talents that go into making a successful film such as directing, script-writing, acting and production values. We have accumulated a database of production companies and talent agencies who will be receiving free invitations to the festival to scout for upcoming talent. The films will be judged by a panel of filmmakers, performers and creative people who know and love films. We are looking for dynamic scripts, direction and performances. Films that are, above all, involving. We are pursuing different possibilities within the broadcast and streaming industries that we hope will be, in the near future, of benefit to our festivals and the filmmakers that take part. There is a high demand for well curated and audience tested creative content and we plan on taking advantage of this need. That is one reason why we are starting our festival off in Edinburgh, Scotland, a hub during the arts festival, for industry movers and shakers from around the UK and the world. Updates will be announced on our social media and newsletter. Sfilmmaker is our exclusive platform for cooperation in China, and we look forward to your good film.
