29 August – 7 September 2014

Shetland’s annual film festival, Screenplay is curated by celebrated film critics Linda Ruth Williams and Mark Kermode. It features a feast of film screenings, lectures and panel discussions involving national and international film industry professionals and film academics. Screenplay also has a strong local flavour, provided by the work of local film makers of all ages and an increased commitment to outreach throughout the islands.

We are now calling for submissions from Shetland film makers of any age for Screenplay 2014. To be eligible you must be a Shetlander by birth or residency, or currently in higher education. Films must be no more than 5 minutes in length and can be in any genre – drama, documentary or animation. The selection process will be competitive. A short-list of submissions will be drawn up and the successful entrants will have their films shown during the festival.
