BF Artist Film Festival - London

OPEN CALL: Artist Film Festival




The BF Artist Film Festival is an independent critical platform for artists working with moving image. Open to national and international artists, the festival programme is selected via a reoccurring open call held 3 times annually.

We welcome single-channel film and video works from within the fields of artists' moving image and media art, short narrative films, documentaries, experimental and essay films, animation and video collage. There are no restrictions on theme, date or premiere status. Videos under 6 minutes are preferred though films of up to 10 minutes will be considered.

The BF Artist Film Festival acknowledges that it is increasingly difficult for emerging artists to operate as the price of studios and further education continues to rise. The Festival works to address this by keeping application fees to a minimum, and providing a supportive network to promote emerging and early career artists working within the field of moving image.

The festival is independent of space and partners with different artist-led spaces around the UK, aiming to offer multiple and varied screening opportunities to selected artists while engaging new audiences around the country. Festival venue(s) and date(s) will be confirmed in the near future. Please check our Facebook page and follow @bf_artistfilmfestival on Instagram for further updates.

Thank you for your interest in the BF Artist Film Festival and best of luck with your application!
