Happy New Year, Filmspotters! We are excited for 2017, and all the new screenings, workshops and projects it will bring. To get us off to a roaring start, we are delighted to be working in collaboration with the events team at Waterstones Brighton to launch The Bookshop Screening Room – a new film night showcasing the best short films from around the world, and for our first blog post of the year, we’re sending out a CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TO FILMMAKERS!
Bringing stories to the big screen, The Bookshop Screening Room (BSR) is a brand new platform to get your films seen thematically by a captive audience within an intimate, literary setting. If you have a story to tell, told well, we’ll show it. We understand, as Hitchcock once said, that you need three things to make a great film, script, script, script, and with this mantra in mind The BSR is an opportunity to dust off the best of your older filmography and show off your newer.
We endeavour to contact all filmmakers if their film has been accepted or not within one month. Filmmakers with a film accepted are invited to the screening + one guest, including complementary drinks. If unable to attend, filmmakers can receive updates to keep them involved in proceedings, as well as have their work promoted by us.
To submit a film before the first evening of 9th February 2017, e-mail the Waterstones Brighton events team on firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
