The last weekend in April and second weekend in May we’ve got 48hr Film Challenges AND free networking evenings: We have in-person networking AND a 48hr Film Challenge at our new venue V and B Northampton (opposite the Guildhall next to the Old Bank pub). The 48hr Film Challenge starts from your homes (or wherever!) 6pm Friday 29th April/Friday 13th May then you need to deliver a film to us by 6pm Sunday 1st May/15th May at V and B’s! Doors open 5pm for drinks and networking. You don’t need to be involved in the 48hr Film Challenge to attend the networking – open to all and it’s of course free, plus you get to watch a few films which might be a nice ice-breaker.

The winners of these 48hr Film Challenges will enter our Winner of Winners category at the May festival. To register for these please email Read all the rules here.
