Wimbledon International Short Film Festival

Criteria

All films must be less than 15 minutes duration including title sequences and credits. So make it short. You can have real impact in a few minutes or even seconds. Shorter films have an equal chance of an award as longer ones.

Categories & prizes

All category-winning directors receive 12 months’ team licence for Cut To: Plan’s latest film project software. This lets 3 users manage, plan and colloborate on your next filmmaking project.
