Exodus Shorts Refugee Film Festival (UK) Call for submissions

As part of the Exodus Refugee Arts Programme 2008


Exodus Shorts is a unique film festival, into its fourth year, that showcases the talents of refugee filmmakers as well as short films that give a fresh and diverse perspective on the lives of Migrant communities.


Screenings will take place across Manchester and in Liverpool during Refugee Week 16 � 22 June 2008. Venues will include Cornerhouse, Imperial War Museum North, Urbis, Contact Theatre and the Picturehouse at FACT.

Guidelines - what are we looking for?

We welcome submissions, from both community groups and individual film makers from the UK and abroad and across different genres from refugee and asylum seeker filmmakers. We are interested in films that are also produced by non-refugee filmmakers but we do ask that they must either demonstrate their relevance to the migration experience or have been produced in collaboration with refugee communities. Films that have had previous screenings are welcome but we would like to know where they have already been screened and any awards they might have won.

Films must be�

Short films: Fiction, Documentary, Animation and Experimental Duration: under 15 minutes Screening formats: miniDV, DVD (PAL format) � DVD preferred

Multiple submissions: permitted but please provide a separate submissions form for each film title

Multiple submissions are allowed but each film must have a completed submission form. Films should be clearly labelled and sent on DVD with the completed submission form.
