Film Festival Open Call

Submissions are now open for the Murze Summer Film Festival


This celebration of film will take place across our website throughout July and August. The Murze homepage and our social media platforms will be filled with changing film from a wide variety of artists and filmmakers over the two month period. We will be accepting submissions of all themes and topic, with a focus on inspirational and challenging pieces exploring the edge of film.


This is an open call for both current and emerging artists and filmmakers, the work will be juried after the submission deadline (30th June) based on the ability to engage and captivate an audience, through the quality of film and subject matter.


Artist and Film-maker Charlotte Prodger won the 2018 Turner Prize with her film, ‘Bridget’, created entirely on an iPhone. This demonstrates a shift in the arts, the fact a piece created on a phone has not only been considered for one of the most prestigious art awards in the world but also won the award, is an indication both of the quality in progressed technology and the ability for anyone to be able to pick up a device and get creating.


The advancement of smartphone technology and the diminishing price means there is no limitation on who can produce film today, so with this open call for the Summer Film Festival we encourage individuals of all backgrounds and skills to create and share their work with us and our audience.
