ASFF 2014: One Month To Go For Submissions

ASFF presents a fantastic opportunity for filmmakers amongst your network at South African Screen Federation to showcase their short films to new audiences and engage with leading industry professionals. Last year’s festival screened 300 films from 36 countries across the world. We are really keen to engage further with filmmakers in South Africa.

There is one month to go to enter ASFF 2014, one of the largest and most exciting short film festivals in the UK. ASFF offers both emerging and established filmmakers the opportunity to engage with new, international audiences and interact with some of the biggest personalities in the film industry today.

Prizes include screenings at ASFF; £750 Festival Winner; £250 People’s Choice Award; Best Category Awards; screenings at a number of other major UK festivals; editorial coverage in Aesthetica Magazine and on the ASFF blog. The time limit is 30 minutes and categories for entry are: Advertising, Animation, Artists’ Film, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Experimental, Fashion, Music Video and Thriller.

ASFF 2014 takes place in 15 unique and iconic locations across the city of York spanning medieval halls, contemporary art spaces and cinemas during the weekend of 6 – 9 November. Alongside screenings, there will be a dynamic series of industry-led masterclasses, hosted networking sessions, panel discussions and parties presenting opportunities to engage with representatives from leading film organisations such as BAFTA, Film 4, Warp Films, Raindance, Film London, Sheffield Doc/Fest and more.
