***************************************************************
Launched in the summer of 2011, Northern Nights is an online platform & pop-up festival for filmmakers seeking a showcase & new partners for their productions.
Our mission is to provide an outlet for the film community to showcase and network, whilst giving the audience an opportunity to engage their passion for film fully and reward the filmmakers they love.
The Northern Nights Festival is not just another film-making competition, but a unique opportunity to be a part of something truly exceptional. Our judges are not just looking for talent, but moreover, they’re in search of a character with an awe-inspiring attitude - someone optimistic and forward-thinking; creative and outstanding, someone brave and devoted, who can shove the limits to the sky. Good luck and see you among the stars on a Northern Night!

After a great success in 2011, Northern Nights Film Festival is making a return, with an extended and thrilling program!

This year the event will run over four days in September, giving up to 300 UK producers, directors, actors, composers, sound recordists, cinematographers, writers, sales agents, distributors - as well as broadcasting and funding representatives - the opportunity to meet and start or further develop their film projects.
Film-makers from around the UK seeking exposure and/or co-production partners can submit projects; we're looking for all kinds of films - of any genre or style, up to 40mins in length. There is no minimum length.

Anyone within the film-making team can submit the entry (although please get the blessing of your team!).

On August 13, the Northern Nights Team will announce the top 5 films that have made the catalogue, which will be featured on our website for the remainder of the year, as well as well as being toured across the UK and abroad, and showed at numerous pop-up events over the course of the year.

Of the remaining submissions, a further 3 films will be selected via online voting, giving anyone who submitted a film a chance to get their following to support them. Anyone CAN vote, they just need to register. Voting starts on August 13 and ends on August 19. The final Catalogue of 8 films is announced the next day.

The festival will run from Monday to Wednesday, September 3rd-5th 2012: three days of screenings intertwined with workshops and networking activities, followed by a culmination on the Gala Night on September 8th - a special event in a lavish setting which will feature the ceremony, awarding the Grand Prize by our judging panel (TBA). Additionally at the festival, the audience gathered each night will grant the best film the 'Audience Award' - a studio day with a RED camera to experiment.

We ask that film-makers pay £5 to submit their films, to help cover the costs of the viewing and judging. This also entitles you to one-day access to the festival, (whether your film has made it or not) to participate in the networking activities; and free entry to the gala night with a guest (alternatively the cost is £12 if you want to immerse yourself in the three-day experience, and you obviously still get to go to the Awards).

Our judges are not just looking for talent, but moreover, they’re in search of a character with an awe-inspiring attitude - someone optimistic and forward-thinking; creative and inspired, someone brave and devoted, who can shove the limits to the sky.

The Northern Nights Festival is not just another film-making competition, but a unique opportunity to be a part of something truly exceptional.

We look forward to receiving your submission.

Yours collaboratively,

The Northern Nights Team
