Regional film-makers have just over a week left to submit their work to be screened as part of the Norwich Sound & Vision festival, run in association with the University of East Anglia.
The Video Festival strand of the three-day event in October is designed to showcase the best in local talent – from drama and documentaries to animations, art projects and music videos.
This year’s theme is ‘Sounds Like Norfolk’ and a bumper crop of short films from across the region have already been submitted. But there is still time to enter before the deadline on Friday, September 28.
The best entries will be showcased at a series of special screenings in St Margaret’s Church on St Benedict’s Street from October 11-13.
The Video Festival
is a new strand of Norwich Sound & Vision
, designed to encourage emerging artists and professionals to present their work to a wider public, and to celebrate the county’s creative talents. It runs alongside the already successful conference for up-and-coming musicians and film-makers, and a series of live concerts.
Dr Sarah Godfrey, from UEA’s school of Film, Television and Media Studies
, said: “The submissions for the Video Festival have been brilliant, and really capture different elements and aspects of Norfolk. We’re hoping more local filmmakers will take this opportunity to show off their work.”
UEA’s school of Film, Television & Media Studies is one of the UK’s oldest and leading centres of film and television studies. It supports and provides activities for local, regional and national festivals and events - from the Aldeburgh Documentary Festival to London’s Turkish Film Festival.
