There are a number of ways you can get involved. Here are just a few ideas…
Visit the Events page to find out about our feature film screenings with Q&As, our short film showings and more
You can submit almost any film with a connection to Northampton or Northamptonshire to the festival for free.
It’s also free to submit non-Northants short and feature films on the theme of Coming of Age – some criteria apply. Find out how here
And we’re also taking out of competition submissions to the First Film category from Northants filmmakers.
Make A Film
If you don’t have an existing film, make one! We can support you through free workshops, and advice and networking sessions. Read more here
48 Hour Film Challenge
If you only have 48 hours that you can dedicate to making a film, that’s fine! Sign up to our 48 hour film challenge from 7pm on Friday 15th March to 7pm on Sunday 17th March. On the Friday we’ll give you a theme/line of dialogue/prop for you to use in your film. Then by 7pm on the Sunday you have to deliver it. We’ll screen all films and we’ll give a prize to our favourite. Find out how here
We are a non-profit organisation – if you would like to volunteer in any aspect of our work, from providing professional services to staffing Film Festival Central to helping with social media, please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
We have sponsorship opportunities available for the festival. We are already working with or been supported by the following organisations: the Northampton Filmhouse, the University of Northampton, CARRIER-media, the Grosvenor Centre, Northampton Borough Council, Northamptonshire Community Foundation and Film Hub Midlands through funds from the National Lottery. Film Hub Midlands support people to watch, show, and make films in the Midlands. Films have been produced for the festival with the support of BBC Children in Need, enabling Screen Northants to produce films with disadvantaged young people from Northamptonshire. For more information contact email@example.com or call 07930 646721.
Come watch some of the films! We’ll be announcing our film festival programme soon. If you want to hear about all our free events and film festival activities you can sign up to the Screen Northants mailing list here
