Parazoom Films proudly sponsors The Jane Austen International Film Festival
Due to the Covid-19 crisis those nominated will not be required to attend the festival.
Judging will still take place and awards will be posted to the filmmakers.
We accept films in the following categories only:
Submissions are now open for the first edition of what promises to be a memorable and eventful film festival, dedicated to artistic and creative filmmaking.
We will include as many high quality shorts, documentaries and music videos as we can and our panel of international judges will select the winners. The festival will feature Q&A's with filmmakers after each film is screened, with plenty of opportunities for networking.
Our mission is to create a film festival that gives independent filmmakers a genuine opportunity to have their films screened. We believe there is disenchantment with the anonymity and exclusivity of the festival circuit and lack of support for art, experimental, documentary and animation films. We aim to show and give awards to films from emerging talents and independent filmmakers, based primarily on their skill set, artistic expression and originality.
We look forward to celebrating the most innovative short films. Maximum length for most entries is 15 minutes except documentaries and Filmed Theatre
which can be up to 120 minutes.
You can be sure that each and every film or music video submitted, will be viewed in its entirety. All films and music videos will be judged at the festival as they are screened.
