The Festival has a six-year history, screening over 350 individual works from 35 countries, including 40 UK or European premieres. Each event has attracted up to 10,000 audiences from across the UK to engage with screenings, events and installations in up to 20 different locations across Berwick-upon-Tweed – capturing the imagination of the whole town.
The next festival is set to take place Friday 23 – Sunday 25 September 2011, and we are currently seeking moving image works of all types – narrative and artist video, live action and animation, fiction and documentary, and dance on film – to screen as part of the Festival.
Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival 2011: Once upon a Time…
Each year, the Festival is curated thematically, and this year we venture into the land of make-believe, exploring the enchantment – and the dark side – of the fairy tale on film. Through presenting the familiar stories, characters and imagery of childhood folk tales, the Festival re-presents and celebrates the art of story-telling on screen.
If you think your work might fit within the festival theme, we’d love to see it!
