15-30 October 2008

The London Film Festival is committed to incorporate a strong presence for
avant-garde and artists' film & video in its programme. For several years,
we have presented a concentrated weekend of artists' work, with many of the
makers attending screenings. This year's special programmes will take place
on 24-26 October 2008.

I am interested to hear about any works completed in the last two years or
currently in progress. If you are a film or video maker, please send tapes
of recent works for preview and consideration. If no previews are available
then send details of your project. Please note that works will be shown in
theatrical screenings. The festival is unable to present installations or
gallery-based work.

Official regulations require that works will receive their UK theatrical
premiere in the Festival. Prior theatrical, UK Festivals, UK television
screenings, UK dvd / video releases or internet transmission films from
entry. To be eligible for screening in the festival, works must have been
made within the last two years, or be archival restorations that have not
yet shown in the UK.

Further information on eligibility, and the mailing address, are on the BFI
website :-

Please complete the online submissions form and select the "Artists' film
and video" category.

Preview materials should be sent for my attention to the Festival office.
Please mark them clearly with my name and send me an email me at
<email suppressed> so that I can look out for them.

Details of the 2007 programme can be found at :-

Note that I have changed my email address and no longer use blueyonder.
Please update your address book but please don't add me to any mailing

The final deadline for submissions is not until the end of June, but I'd
appreciate if you could contact me as soon as possible as I do begin to work
on the programmes well in advance.

With best wishes,
