The TriForce Short Film Festival, established by the TriForce Creative Network to promote, support and showcase the diverse range of talent in contemporary film-making, announces today that it has opened for submissions for 2018. With a focus on recognising and supporting diverse talent, the festival brings together film-makers with the movers and shakers in the industry, enabling emerging artists to break into the mainstream. Showcasing the best in short film, alongside a programme of career focused seminars and practical workshops throughout the day and an industry expo, the TriForce Short Film Festival is the place to be to further your career in film.
16 shortlisted films get the chance to be seen on the big screen, in front of key industry representatives, with the winning film-makers earning career development opportunities, as well as a cash prize for their next project. The TFSFF takes place at BAFTA, presenting a packed day of seminars and practical workshops offering invaluable advice from industry professionals, alongside a bustling industry expo and screenings of the shortlisted films.
This year the films will be judged by a panel of industry experts including critically acclaimed directors, producers and commissioners as well as world-renowned British screenwriter, producer, and film director Richard Curtis CBE. The festival is also pleased to announce it will be continuing its relationship with entrepreneur, philanthropist and film producer Professor Stefan Allesch-Taylor CBE who will join the judging panel as well as offering to finance the next project for the Best of the Fest winner. Allesch-Taylor has recently announced his intention to support short filmmakers in the UK with a £1m short film fund.
