Call For Entries


Filmmakers and artists are invited to enter the 20th Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival.

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is the UK’s Festival for New Cinema & Artists’ Moving Image. BFMAF is committed to the mutual development of artists, audiences, critics, filmmakers, and programmers. They make the festival possible.

“As if to answer the question ‘what can moving images be and do in this disquieting moment?’, BFMAF suggests they can be time machines, maps, love letters, poems, ghosts, fever dreams, missives, manifestos. They can also explode.”

– Elena Gorfinkel, Art Monthly

All entries are predominantly considered for the New Cinema Awards but may also be considered for other strands presented in Berwick-upon-Tweed, 27 – 30 March 2025.

Entry Deadlines:

  • Early Call (£15) Monday 2 September 2024 23:59 BST
