Due to the ongoing uncertainty with the pandemic and live events, we will be holding a virtual ceremony on December 7th 2021.
We can’t wait to celebrate big time with our awards supper party in 2022.
There are three showcases: In the Making; On The Cusp of Greatness and Flying High Established.
The categories are:
Short Film - Fiction
Short Film - Non Fiction
Personal Project (Non-commercial, spec, video art etc)
Yes! Gold ! Silver!
We are aware that this is a difficult year.
if you are struggling to afford the full entry fee please get in touch.
Our goal is to encourage talent not to stifle it.
Please include a link to your work so that we can view it.
Please bear in mind though 1.4 is self-funded and independent.
We are completely dependent on your entries support for sustaining 1.4's online magazine which is used as a year-round resource for commissioners. It's also a damn good read of interviews with brilliant filmmakers.
The inaugural 1.4 Show and Party was on September 17, 2015.
