Announcing re:screenfest, the Regent’s first film festival – something to do today!

During our time out of circulation, we’re delighted to announce a brand-new community film festival which will result we hope in some exciting work from film makers of all ages and end with a glitzy film premiere on October 11th 2020.

We are inviting entries in two categories –

General audience short film – We’re looking for families, groups of people or those in isolation to get creative right now and make short films whilst the country is out of commission. Your work can be based on any theme and can be connected to your current situation or be as far removed as you’d like! This is a short film category and your entry should be no longer than 10 minutes and no less than 90 seconds. Your work must be original and should not have been published or exhibited before. Note, your work must be made in accordance with safety rules regarding isolation and social distancing and you must have consent from all participants before filming and the entry must be submitted by somebody over the age of 18.

Best new film We’re looking for a single and complete new film. This should be no more than 90 minutes ideally and could be suitable for any audience. It does not need to have been made recently but should be considered new work not yet in distribution. This category is for film makers aged 18 or over.

The prize –

On October 11th 2020 we will have a screening at the Regent Centre for the shortlisted Family Audience films and the winner of the Best Film category. The proceeds of this event will be split between the Regent Centre Development Fund and local charities in discussion with the winners of each category.
