Maidstone Film Festival is Coming and Open for Submissions

Dates: 14th November – 20th November 2012

The first of what is hoped to become a new annual film festival is coming to Maidstone this November! Stepping Stones Studios will be hosting a week long celebration of the rich history, diversity and brilliance of cinema and are also open for submissions to short film makers.

Each day, the festival will embrace different aspects of film culture through a dynamic series of screenings and events spread out over the course of a week. The studio space will be transformed into a cinema and portray the themes of the day.

Discussions exploring the various ideologies and relevance of today’s ever changing digital world will aim to help filmmakers come together, expand their understanding and share their love of cinema.

As well as presenting some of the best Cinema has to offer, Stepping Stone Studios is also offering the opportunity for upcoming film-makers to show their work. The film-maker who displays the most innovation, resourcefulness and artistic integrity will have the honour of receiving the First Film Development Award (FFDA). Submissions are now being accepted with a closing date set at the 9th November.

If you can’t wait until November, every Tuesday you are always welcome to attend the weekly film screenings taking place at the Stepping Stone Studios. Visit them on Facebook to find out more:!/pages/Stepping-Stone-Studio/196964003706101
