Call For Entries

Call For Entries


Filmmakers and artists are now invited to enter their films for the 19th edition of Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, the UK’s festival of New Cinema taking place in early 2024.

All entries will be considered for the New Cinema Awards and site-specific single screen exhibition in Berwick-upon-Tweed during the Festival in early 2024. Rather than offering a single prize, chosen by a jury, all selected films are award winners and receive £400.

Entry Deadlines:

  • Early Call (£15) Monday 2 October 2023
  • Final Call (£20) Monday 6 November 2023

Please ensure your film meets the following criteria before entering:

  • Completed in 2023 (or have had no public screening prior to 2023)
  • No previous or scheduled UK film festival screenings before March 2024
  • Not previously entered to the Festival
  • Feature films must not have been theatrically released in the UK before March 2023
  • All works in a language other than English must be subtitled in English

Partially finished films which can be completed in time for the festival are eligible for entry.
