The Berwick upon Tweed Film & Media Arts Festival 2011 has received submissions from far and wide!

Half of the films have come from outside the UK, including a good proportion from the USA and Germany, more from East Asia than ever before, and with others coming from everywhere from Australia to Serbia! They will be screened over a three-day period, Sept. 23 – 25.

Each year, the Festival is curated thematically, and this year the theme is Once Upon a Time. It ventures into the land of make-believe, exploring the enchantment – and the dark side – of the fairy tale on film. Through presenting the familiar stories, characters and imagery of childhood folk tales, the Festival celebrates the art of story-telling. on screen.

The Festival has a six-year history, screening more than 350 individual works from 35 countries, including 40 UK and European premieres. Each event has attracted up to 10,000 audiences from across the UK to engage with screenings, events and installations in up to 20 different locations across Berwick-upon-Tweed – illuminating the whole town.

The next festival will feature all types of film – narrative and artist video, live action and animation, fiction and documentary, and dance on film – to screen as part of the Festival.

The festival is one of the most important events in the cultural calendar of the county and is of interest to visitors from within the county and people taking a holiday in Northumberland.
