The date of this year’s Tri-Force Short Film Festival (TFSFF) has been announced! If you’re an up and coming filmmaker who has created a film that is 20 minutes or under in length, submission for 2014 is officially open.
The Tri-Force Short Film Festival has one main objective: to showcase quality short films and support and recognise the talent of filmmakers from all over who have created excellent films that are under 20 minutes in length, but haven’t yet received the exposure they deserve. Thanks to its network of friends and the success of the previous two years, TFSFF has plans to expand even further.
In 2013 the festival took place at BAFTA and was attended by UK film and television actors like Nick Pinnock (Captain America), Hugh Quarshie (Star Wars) and Broadchurch‘s Will Mellor. This year promises to be an even bigger star-studded event, taking place on 22nd November 2014 also at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in London.
The shortlisted films will be shown to an audience and panel of industry experts throughout the day before the overall winners are announced.
It’s not all about the competition though. The itinerary for the day includes helpful seminars for those wanting to learn about the film industry too. In the evening a Red Carpet Gala event intended to showcase the winners of each category will take place. The announcement of the overall winner and audience choice awards will also take place here.
Thanks to the large number of entrants in previous years, Tri-Force has taken the initiative and created four separate categories for the film awards, Drama, Comedy, Animation and MicroShorts.
Each category will have four finalists, but there will only be one winner per category. These four films will be put forward to potentially be named ‘Best of the Fest’ and receive the TFSFF Audience Choice Award.
Tri-Force Short Film Festival is now open to submissions. Fees for entering each category are low to ensure more of you can enter. The newest MicroShorts category offers aspiring filmmakers with films under five minutes free entry to the festival.
