As we close in on the final few weeks of the call for sponsorship through the crowdfunding platform, we can finally confirm the festival dates hosted at Studio 74, The Phoenix, Exeter. We still require sponsorship so please do check out our page:   

Importantly, the festival will open on Wednesday 2nd November and continue every Wednesday (9th and 16th) until Wednesday 23rd November 2016. We will soon be uploading the films and talks scheduled for these dates. 

Secondly - in terms of the short films and short premieres for the festival, we have had a total 151 submissions to date via Film Freeway, with 48 being submitted in the last seven days. 37 of these shorts have been submitted from the UK (representing Scotland and Wales) with other films being submitted from a diverse set of countries, such as the USA and Canada, representing diasporic communities.    

We also now have a listing on the Phoenix's website here:
