Who can apply?


You may submit a film if you are a current student in the North, or if you graduated last year from a Northern film school or University.

The festival is to be used as a platform for young filmmakers to showcase their work to the public. It will give them the opportunity to gain an insight into the industry as well as providing potential connections for future projects.

MCR Student Film Festival 2019:


The first year of the festival took place on 5th and 6th of JUNE 2019.

Along with viewings of the films, we hosted Q&A’s with professionals from the industry alongside a drinks reception.

We also had Yen Yau as representative of the Grierson Trust programme.
