Harrogate Film Festival has announced its ever-growing independent filmmakers’ competition and annual workshops will be back for 2021 available both online – and if Government guidelines at the time allow – safely in person.
The global independent filmmaker’s competition, recently voted as one of the “Top 100 worldwide” by filmmakers, has ten screenings on offer, including short films with Drama, Comedy, Horror, Romance and Documentary all on the bill.
With over 500 submissions from 70 countries submitted this year alone, the Festival expects the competition to be eagerly anticipated among film lovers as it showcases the next generation of talent across the globe.
This will again be supported by the Northern Film School who for the second year in a row will be supporting the development of the festival's educational and community engagement initiatives.
Annabelle Pangborn, Head of Subject for Film has said:
“We are thrilled to once again work in partnership with The Harrogate Film Festival following last year’s success.
“The partnership has already proved to be a wonderful platform for budding filmmakers to exhibit the latest in innovation across the industry as well as network with industry professionals.
“It’s also a great opportunity for us to showcase the talent here at the Northern Film School as we continue to help develop filmmakers of the future.”
The partnership, now in its second year, comes just as the university is due to open its new £80 million-pound Leeds School of Arts development in the heart of the city where the Northern Film School will be housed."
“We also have a raft of new and exciting events to announce soon. I’d also like to thank all our partners for supporting us again in 2021 – it’s been a challenging year for everyone - we can’t wait to bring you something a little bit different.”
