Fringe Film Festival Calls For Submissions

Filmmakers across the country are being called to sumbit their films before 20th May for the 15th Fringe Short Film Festival in Wellington on 15th-19th July.

All films will be accepted although drama, animation and experimental projects need to be no more than 15 minutes in duration, with a 30 minute limit for documentaries.

The Festival will provide filmmakers with the opportunity to screen their work in a supportive, informative and non-competitive environment and creates a platform in which they can develop their talent.

Screenings will take place over a four day period. At the end of each screening, film-makers discuss their films with the audience and receive feedback on work shown. On the last day of the Festival workshops are held on particulars aspect of the industry.

The rules and regulations for submissions are available on the web site – or by calling 04 802 4942.

A special competition will also be running alongside the Festival to promote originality and innovation within a given theme and time frame. This year’s theme is "Nursery Rhymes". This will hopefully encourage first-time filmmakers and students to specifically create a film, with a duration of less than 3 minutes, especially for the Fringe, with prizes donated by industry sponsors. The deadline for entry forms is 5th June, with completed films received by 17th June.

For many filmmakers Wellington Fringe Short Film Festival offers the only chance to screen their work and over the years has hosted many premieres. It also encourages debate, challenges filmmakers to consider the all aspects of the industry via feedback and suggestions provided by industry experts and peers. This type of collective participation is key to the evolution of the New Zealand film industry.
