Ipswich Film Festival – Calling future Quentin Tarantinos


Whether you are a movie buff, a keen videographer or are simply looking to have some fun, the Ipswich Film Festival for Youth (IFFY) is a FREE themed short film festival for young people aged 7-25 years.

Not only does IFFY promote youth creativity through filmmaking, there are also some great cash and prizes on offer. If that’s not enough to entice you, perhaps the ultimate bragging rights as an award-winning filmmaker would be. You’d be crazy not to enter!

Entries for IFFY 2017 close on Sunday, 28 January 2018, giving you plenty of time to plan and film. The theme this year is GROW.

Don’t forget that it’s all about having a go, and entry is FREE.

With the different judging categories you can enter whether you’re an absolute amateur or a director extraordinaire.

Entry isn’t just limited to Ipswich residents. Youth from across the globe can submit a film. You can enter as an individual, or get your school involved and submit a film as a group.

Films can be made using a video camera or alternative devices such as computer animation platforms or smartphones. Films only need to be 1-3 minutes long.

Make sure you submit your entry by Sunday, 28 January 2018 (plenty of time to film and edit during school or university holidays!).

There are seven award categories with cash and prizes up for grabs: Primary School Winner, Secondary School Winner, Individual Entrant (7-12) Winner, Individual Entrant (13-17) Winner, Individual Entrant (18-25) Winner, Animation/Stop Motion Winner and an Overall Winner.
