Bristol Radical Film Festival 2014: Call for Films

Bristol Radical Film Festival
3-9 March 2014

The Bristol Radical Film Festival returns with another packed programme of oppositional documentary and fiction film from around the world. Opening at The Cube Microplex, Bristol’s volunteer-run not-for-profit cinema, the festival tours a variety of progressive, community-based spaces before culminating in a weekend of screenings, talks, workshops and debates at The Arc, a four-storey community centre in the heart of the city dedicated to activism and social change.

Once again the festival will feature a dedicated competition strand of short filmmaking, and is seeking contributions from individuals and collectives in the UK and further afield:

  • Submission is free and open to all.
  • Running-times must not exceed 15 minutes.
  • The deadline for submissions is December 31st 2013.

While this is an overtly political film festival, the definition of ‘radical’ is an open one: the festival team are interested in films radical in topic, content, form (or all of the above).

Contributors should upload their films to a video-sharing or file-transfer site and send the link to Details of which films have been chosen will be released in early 2014.
