Transcending The Cinema

Margate Film Festival returns October 2019. Be a part of it.

Margate Film Festival is a project born out of the turbulence of changing cultural landscapes and a love for the chaos of creativity – a journey through the wilderness of the cinema.

The festival connects local communities and artists with national and international initiatives to create a DIY, collaborative film & visual arts celebration. This year it will expand to include artists moving image, audio-visual installations and a programme of talks, overlapping with the Turner Prize.

The 2019 festival explores the theme of ‘Against The Tide’, collating stories of political and personal change; exploring migration, transformation and evolution of landscapes, and that of both individual and communal heritage and identities.

We are looking to commission new and innovative audio-visual works that take film beyond the screen, as well as talks, installations and educational opportunities.

We are offering grants of up to £1,000 or options for ticket splits. We would expect most pitches to be under £500. The call-out is open to all creatives, local and international, of any background, experience level, medium or style.

Deadline: midnight July 1st 2019
