Call For Entries: The Strawberry Shorts Film Festival 2012

Cambridge Cinema Shorts, in partnership with Strawberry Fair, are delighted to announce that we will be holding The Strawberry Shorts Film Festival on the evening of Friday 1st June. The Film Festival has the honour of acting as the opening event for Strawberry Fair 2012, which takes place on Saturday 2nd June.

Film submissions are invited for the 12th Strawberry Shorts Film Festival and those short-listed will be entered into our competitive programme vying for a chance to win La Fraise d’Or.

Strawberry Shorts is a well established and respected short film festival and an important event in the Cambridge calendar, enjoying national support and international recognition. Each year we try to add a little extra, keeping it fresh and alive, and encouraging continued interest with year round supporting events.

There will be two categories, Best Overall Festival Winner and Best Local Short Film, (we feel we have a duty to encourage local film makers). There are two awards for each category, The Audience Award and The Jury Award – with the winners being announced at the end of the evening.

Films can be of any genre but should be less than 20 minutes long. There is no submission fee.

Close of entry is Saturday 28th April.

The festival will be held on Friday 1st June and entry will be on a first come, first served basis. All audience members will receive voting slips on arrival so they can vote for The Audience Award . Further details of venue and times will be available closer to date, so please continue to visit our web site for information and news on this and other forthcoming events.

Mickfest

Mickfest was a day long music festival celebrating the life of much loved musician and filmmaker Michael (Mick) Gillett who passed away this June 2011. The event was held at The Maltings, Ely on Saturday the 29th of October, 2011. Here we present Mickfest a film documenting that musical and moving day. We had some technical problem with our cameras during the filming and that did impact on the final edit. But love that all the musicians interviewed had for Mick still shines through.
