After the success of the Ayrshire Filmmakers Festival, we are holding a larger 2 day festival which will be called the Ayr International Short Film Festival. We are currently looking for a location in which to hold our event which will be in either June, July or August 2014.
Many film festivals ask for fee entries to enter films, as this is our first festival we would like to invite filmmakers to enter their films for free.
As ELGATO Film Productions we already have a number of sponsors from local businesses who would be interested in the film festival including The Basement Coffee House, Minuteman Press, Crumbs and Cocktails etc.
Films at the film festival will cover all genres including drama, horror, comedy, family, sci-fi etc.
We have created a website for the film festival which you can see here: www.ayrisff.com and this will have all of the details of how you can submit your film on there!
The judging panel will be made up of Alberth MG, Melanie Law and Simon Lyell who are passionate filmmakers from our community group ELGATO Film Productions.
There will be 4 awards at the film festival that will include Best Director, Best Performance, Best Sound and the People’s Choice Award. These awards have been kindly provided for us by our sponsor Reid Trophies from here in Ayr, Scotland UK.
We are also looking for a celebrity to come and judge the films as a guest judge. This venture will bring more tourists and other people to our beautiful town of Ayr, West of Scotland.
So get ready, get your camera and start shooting!
We are looking forward to receiving all of the film entries!
