Entries are welcome from the following age categories:

The deadline for submissions is 30th April 2013, with films screened at the Meniscus Short Film Festival in Summer 2013.
Please see the links to the downloads in the top right hand corner of this page for full entry regulations, a pdf copy of the entry form and a Word copy of the entry form. You can also submit the form electronically using the link.
