LUC Festival 2016 – Call for film submissions

banner-cta_over_redThe terrifying wail of the bunker klaxon means that we’ve just ticked over into the main submission period for the LUC Festival 2016.

Now in our fourth year we have four categories for submissions, including features for the first time.

The impoverished bean counters in the accounting department are all too aware of how strapped for cash most filmmakers are, so we’ve kept the fees as low and the prizes as high as we can (with a maximum of £1000 up for grabs) to attract films from as many of you as possible.

We want to show original films that will entertain, move, perplex, surprise and even maybe outrage our audience. We will always favour something interesting and entertaining but a bit rough over something technically amazing but dull – but if you can manage both you could well be onto a winner.

To submit, head over to our page on the marvellous FilmFreeway site to get all the particulars and send us your masterwork. The standard deadline is August 31st and the late deadline will be September 30th.

The categories for submissions are:

LUC SHORT FILM PRIZE 2016: £1000 ($1500)

FOR FILMS UNDER 15 MINUTES – ENTRY FEE: £7 ($10)

LUC 60 SECONDS MAX PRIZE 2016 : £250 ($375)

FOR FILMS UNDER 1 MINUTE –ENTRY FEE: £3 ($5)

LUC SHORT ANIMATION PRIZE 2016: £100 ($150)

FOR FILMS UNDER 10 MINUTES – ENTRY FEE: FREE

LUC FESTIVAL FEATURES

FOR FILMS OVER 45 MINUTES – ENTRY FEE: £10 ($15)
