Ironstar Summer shorts 2019

An announcement this week from our friends running the Ironstar summer shorts film festival in 2019.

Made a short film? Want the chance to see it on the big screen or perhaps the chance to be crowned the Audience’s choice winner and walk away with £500! Then submit today! Early bird deadline closes in 1 week!

“The Ironstar summer shorts competition was founded by local independent filmmakers with a passion to get movies made and to have those artistic voices heard. Understanding the difficulty in today’s film environment in showcasing independent cinema, their goal is to establish a presence and awareness of cinematic creativity throughout the local area and beyond.

We are very happy to be partnering with Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA) on this endeavour. DCA prides itself on its varied programme, created with its audiences in mind.

Like ourselves DCA want to find films that they believe their audiences will love. The final selection of films will be presented in the high quality and comfortable surroundings: one of DCA’s stunning cinema screens.

We hope this event will provide the local community not only with an opportunity to see what independent short film has to offer but also give both national and international filmmakers a platform to showcase their work how it should be shown. ON THE BIG SCREEN! created by filmmakers, we are doing everything to make sure that Independent Short format Filmmakers get what they deserve out of our programme. Our mission is to expand audience reach and bring awareness to films that might otherwise never have the opportunity to be showcased.

Ironstar Summer shorts accepts short films up to 15 minutes in length across many genres, so we encourage filmmakers from around the globe to submit their work for a chance to have it shown on the big screen.

Filmmakers can rest assured that all submitted films are watched in their entirety by the Ironstar programmers whose task is to, independently of our partners choose the final selection. We know getting you film watched is a major concern when it comes to choosing which festival to submit to. The Ironstar team will be hard at work promoting every film that gets accepted, to ensure that audiences attend the screening.

You can find out more about the awards, prizes, terms and conditions at their website RIGHT HERE.”
