Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is one of the UK’s leading festivals for new cinema and artists’ moving image.

Based in England’s most northerly town, BFMAF is a dynamic forum where fresh artistic voices develop and audiences hungry for complex and challenging art are nurtured.

Increasingly recognised for its innovative programme and critical engagement, BFMAF presents artists’ and filmmakers’ work in the cinema as well as expanded formats of exhibition and performance. It seeks to empower people and provide a generous place for the exploration of ideas and new perspectives, testing the boundaries of what a festival can be.

All single screen works under 60 minutes in length will automatically be eligible for selection in the Festival’s New Cinema Competition and a £750 prize. Last years winner was Cilaos by Camilo Restrepo.

We look forward to seeing your work!
