Deaffest 2010 Calls For Film Submissions

The UK's only deaf-led film and television festival which celebrates the talents of deaf filmmakers and media artists, returns on Friday 21 - Sunday 23 May 2010 at The Light House Media Centre.
Filmmakers can now submit their film to be shown at the festival by emailing or submitting an application form online.
The weekend of festivities will include screenings of films produced by UK and International deaf filmmakers and plenty of panel discussions, networking opportunities and social events. Deaffest 2010 will be the twelfth festival to be held in Wolverhampton since 1998. The festival aims to nurture new talent in the deaf community and showcase the work of deaf filmmakers and producers to a wider audience.
Deaffest is also pleased to announce that the Ben Steiner Bursary is returning in 2010. Launched in 2009, the award gives one deaf filmmaker the opportunity of winning £5,000 to produce a film, which will be premiered exclusively at the 2011 festival. Submissions are now being accepted.
