The 'exposures: new talent in moving image' festival, organised in conjunction with the University of Salford, is calling for entries for the 2009 film festival which will take place in Manchester in November.
exposures is a collaborative film festival organised by Cornerhouse, University of Salford and AbbottVision and is in its 16th year. It is the only regular UK-wide festival for student films and moving image and is a crucial showcase for new talent and they need new entries for the 2009 event.
The deadline for this year's entries is 31 July 2009.
Last year Shameless creator, Paul Abbott, of AbbottVision, became exposures' patron. Paul has been very involved in developing new ideas and in shaping the festival.
Russell T Davies, producer and writer of Doctor Who, and Danny Boyle, director of Slumdog Millionaire, as well as many other leading people in the film industry, have contributed to the festival over the years and continue to offer their support towards its aim to become the UK's premiere student film festival dedicated to nurturing, developing and promoting new talent.
Any students who have made a film whilst studying at a UK educational institution, can enter their film as long as it is under 30 minutes in length. There is no theme for the competition and it is open to animation, visual art films, documentaries, fiction & drama or any other type of film students wish to make.
