Liverpool Film Night 2016 is the only film event dedicated to supporting and showcasing regional film talent, and last year saw over 50 films submitted. A decade of sell-out events have seen on-screen talent include big names such as the late Pete Postlethwaite and Jarvis Cocker, and past judges include Anfield-born award-winning animator and director Chris Shepherd.
Submissions of films in any genre are welcome before 19 October, with the only restrictions being that the film must have been made within the last 18 months and be no more than 15 minutes in length. Submission guidelines and information about how to submit can be found on fact.co.uk/lfn2016
Also this autumn, FACT is pleased to launch the Filmmaker Talent Development Programme – an exciting new opportunity for professional filmmakers in the Northwest and North Wales to develop their film and new media skills. Funded by Creative England and delivered by FACT in collaboration with partners from industry, creative and cultural sectors, this free six-month programme of workshops, running from November 2016 until April 2017, aims to support film talent, creativity and diversity in the region.
