“Whether you're a seasoned filmmaker or a total newbie with just a smart phone, showcase your creative skills and explore your craft beyond the horizon!

“Winners will be selected on: storytelling, technical ability, interpretation of the theme, emotional content and entertainment value, with an audience showcase event in the autumn, to show the films on the big screen at Ferring Village Hall.

“With no restriction on genre or style, film-makers are challenged to explore the unknown, whether it's in the context of outer space, the uncharted territories of the inner mind or the undiscovered aspects of the local community. We encourage a sense of curiosity, to think beyond the conventional horizon and take audiences on an exciting journey of discovery.

“Films can be any duration up to a maximum of ten minutes, must be shot in Full HD, (1920x1080 pixels), in landscape format, using the 16x9 ratio.
