Here we have our September list of Notable dates for festivals in the coming month of September, nearer the end of the year, there appear to be more events than deadlines, but you may find a few that interest you!
The short film Lavender’s Blue, starring Stine Olsen and Natalie Sloth Richter has been selected for the BAFTA qualifying Portabello Road Film Festival in September. The screenplay was written, in Danish, by (director) Saranne Bensusan and inspired by the nursery rhyme written by Rachael Howard for the short story “Memories” for The Anthropocene Chronicles
As we get towards the end of the year, their are fewer deadlines and submissions, and we find that the calendar is for the most part dominated by the actual events themselves, the first of the month has several deadlines though.
Like the other Short films that we have available, Subtitles for Lavenders Blue are now available for festivals to download from our website, they can also be downloaded from Vimeo if you saw the film there, though our SRT file collection has a larger range in it than you’ll find on Vimeo.
This month has BAFTA and Oscar qualifiers scattered throughout the month but as far as festivals go, it is dominated mainly by Palm Springs ShortsFest
but do pay attentiton to the important deadlines on the fifteenth especially if you are a short film maker, as there are two BAFTA qualifying festivals closing their submissions on that date.
