Last-minute entries from all over the world pushed the total number of submissions up to 268. That’s a significant increase on last year. But it’s the quality of the entries that is really impressive. It was not an easy job for judges to narrow down the categories.

Here are the key stats…
The largest number of entries came from the UK, with a total of 119 (44 per cent) followed by the United States with 57 (21 per cent).
Overall, we had submissions from 35 countries on six continents, from Iceland to Peru, Iraq to Trinidad. Narrative / Drama was the most popular category with 50 films, but we had another 43 in the Lockdown category, showing how the pandemic is still affecting our lives.
A heartfelt thank you everyone, wherever you are in the world, for your support. It’s your films that make our festival.

As always FilmFreeway is our exclusive partner of choice. We have found them easy to work with and they know film.
