Who is allowed to enter?
Crews made up of students. This, however, can include a maximum of 2 non-student members (excluding actors)
I am a student at UCA but the campus is not based in Canterbury. Can I still enter?
Yes. Any university student from UCA – whether the university is based in Canterbury, Farnham, Maidstone, Epsom or Rochester – is welcome to enter.
How long can the films submitted be?
The works submitted should be short films. 20 minutes maximum.
What is the deadline for the submissions?
All films must be submitted by midnight on the 5th of February 2018. Any submissions made after this time will not be considered.
What if my short is already on the internet?
Preferably, the short films participating in the festival should not be on the internet. If you apply and your short can be found online, you will be asked to take it down if your application is successful. Shorts which will fail to do this will be excluded from the competition.
How many films can I enter?
Maximum one submission per team.
Price for submission?
The entry fee is free with the code CUFF2018. Applicants can claim two tickets to the film festival. There are a limited number of tickets so we will operate on a first come, first serve.
What happens if I am successful?
If your application is successful, you will be contacted by email and we will require an HD copy of your film along with other press material to help promote the screenings.
What awards could I be granted?
