With prizes awarded across a plethora of different categories, including Best Micro Short, Best Documentary and Best Stunt, regardless of your point of interest there’s an opening for you.

This year’s festival boasts more workshops, more seminars, more free screenings, and more of everything else that has made it such a success since its inception. If you’re a member of the Birmingham film community, and are looking to broach the wider world of cinema production, you’d be hard pushed to find a better first step.
