Thanks to the huge success of our 2017 festival, in no small part down to the generous support of the Norwich audiences and filmmakers around the world, we are thrilled to announce that we are in a fortunate position to increase our cash prizes! We aim to reinvest as much as we can back into the festival to help support those who have supported us, and that means that this year we have QUADRUPLED our prize fund! As well as all the amazing prizes we have on offer, generously donated by some of our corporate sponsors, we are happy to announce that the prize structure this year will be as follows:
BEST SHORT FILM = £1000
BEST ANIMATED FILM = £1000
BEST DOCUMENTARY FILM = £1000
BEST STUDENT FILM = £1000
BEST EAST ANGLIAN FILM = £1000
And also, in case you missed the news last year, we're now a BIFA qualifying short film festival, meaning that British short films selected for our festival will be eligible for the next British Independent Film Awards!
