Fylde Film Festival 2018

Fylde Film Festival (formerly Fylde Film Showcase) is proud to be returning for its second year!

It brings with it the opportunity for independent regional, national and international filmmakers to have their work showcased in pop-up events at venues across Blackpool town centre, culminating in an awards ceremony at the prestigious ‘Viva Blackpool’.

Independent filmmakers are encouraged to submit their short films for consideration via ‘FilmFreeWay’ before 13th April 2018.

The festival aims to showcase as many films as possible via the showcase events, awards evening event and associated online sites. The organisers strongly advocate student films; however, submission is open to all and we are looking for hungry, passionate short filmmakers who are eager to increase their public exposure and build their reputation.

All the pop-up showcase events are FREE to enter, the public are encouraged to come along and immerse themselves in the films (headphones provided to enable unspoiled enjoyment.)

Tickets for the awards evening, reasonably priced at £3.50, are available at the showcases and Viva Blackpool.
