Exposure Short Film Festival – Call for entries!

With the indie film scene booming in Glasgow it’s never been a better time for young creative minds to get involved in filmmaking. Although the thought of making a whole film is rather daunting even the smallest step in the right direction can help. This is exactly the point of the first ever Exposure Short Film Festival taking place on October 10th at the Queen Margaret Union.

We are calling all young inexperienced filmmakers to show off their works and to do so we’re giving them a screen, a stage, and an enthusiastic audience. We’re not looking for highly polished big budget films. We’re looking for simple amateur works that show talent, dedication, and most importantly a passion for film. So get in on the action and submit your film now. See details below.

Even if you’re just a film lover the short film festival will give you a chance to enjoy the art of short films and to ignite debate and discussion with other film enthusiasts. Numerous screenings will be held throughout the day showcasing a range of different genres, styles, and talents. With the union’s bars and cafés open all day audience members can enjoy a lively creative atmosphere while checking out the talent on show with a few cheap drinks, some great food, and hopefully have the chance to meet some of our budding young directors in the flesh.

After the day of celebration our experienced judges and audience will give their feedback on every film on show and select the prize winners, sponsored by the Glasgow Film Theatre. Finally one talented filmmaker will receive the coveted Exposure Best Picture Award.
