Sunday 11pm - Send us your film! Entry - £8 in advance (recommended!) and £10 on the day - this covers both the competition and the screening event. The films will be screened around a week later at an event where documentary film professionals give feedback on each films and announce a winner and runner up. WINNERS get a meeting with Spring Films - twice Oscar nominated and BAFTA/Emmy winning factual production company! You'll get tips on commissioning and an insight into how they operate.
