Film Competition Longlists Announced!

We may have already mentioned we were blown away by the volume and talent of the film entries for our film and animation competition this year?

We had over 180 International Films, Over 80 UK films and over 50 Tri-County (Surrey / Berks / Hants) films.

Our jury members have been locked away in darkened rooms viewing, taking notes and compiling our long and short lists.

Very special thanks go to Alex Underwood and Rebecca Fox for helping us through this stage. An extra special thanks to Kelly Kitsiouli without whom we would still be viewing the films!

These lists have now been sent to the judging panel, Juliet Aubrey, Robert Doherty, Jason Glenister and last year’s winners Evie Gordon and Francis Cousins.

The Awards ceremony will be taking place at Camberley Theatre on Thursday 21st June at 8pm. It’s free toattend and all are very welcome. The bar will be open all evening and the awards will be presented by BAFTA Award winning actress and C.I.F. patron, Juliet Aubrey.

So without further a do here are the lists:
