We are continuing our adventure with short films about the diversity of craft in all its forms. And will again host ‘Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival’ in WA later this year – with tour dates across Australia too.
You can submit up to three short films to the Crafts Council UK that have been made since January 2016. Fees and terms apply. Read on for more details.
If you decide to submit your film, please let us know. We are eager to capture films created in our region for potential inclusion in other film festivals and events, so send us a link to your film/s.
Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival is dedicated to craft and the moving image. Created by the Crafts Council UK, this will be its fourth rendition and continues its mission to highlight the sheer depth and scope of craft from around the globe.
WHAT TYPE OF FILMS?
All genres are encouraged, from documentaries, to story-led films to animation: if your film explores making, skills and materials, in the broadest sense, the selection panel would like to see it. The Crafts Council UK is committed to promoting and celebrating diversity. Applications from currently under-represented groups in contemporary craft, including applicants with disabilities and minority ethnic backgrounds are encouraged.
Short films – up to 30 minutes in length – only.
Films must have been made after 1st January 2016.
FEES APPLY (IN BRITISH POUNDS)
The submission fees for up to three films are:
£40 | 7th Jan – 21 Jan 2019
(Today £10 = AU$18 approximately)
Final deadline is 4 February 2019.
You will need to upload your film to a hosting service such as Vimeo, YouTube, Wistia, etc for the selection panel to view the film.
If your film’s original language is not English, it will only be accepted if submitted with English subtitles.
Your film must be your own work, and you should have obtained copyright or relevant permissions for all images and films used in your piece.
Filmmakers of productions selected for screening will be notified by Friday 8 March 2019 and will be required to submit a ProRes file on an NTFS-formatted USB or hard drive by Friday 15 March 2019.
In case of selection, the copyright holder automatically authorises The Crafts Council to screen the film during the London festival and for additional screenings in the UK and internationally to take place before May 2020 free of charge and to use publicity material about the author(s) and/or the film, as well as a clip of the production for promotional purposes through press and the internet. The clip may also be included on the Crafts Council website and tour host websites.
