We hope you are all well and that your 2021 is getting off to a good start! We appreciate everyone is living life online right now so we have tried not to bombard everyone with lots of updates or newsletters, keeping in mind how saturated we all are with emails and online meetings. Here’s a few OXISFF updates you might have missed:
Partnership with EFN
Firstly we have partnered up with the wonderful festival team at EFN (Emerging Filmmakers Night). We both share the same ethos of wanting to promote emerging talent and passion for amazing short films. They run quarterly, so be sure to check them out at https://www.efnfestival.org.
Secondly we wanted to update you on the festival itself. Our primary goal for 2021 is to run a live festival in some form! Whilst we are still working towards this, it is highly likely that our provisional date in March will not be possible. We have been speaking to the venue in the hope we can move the festival to the summer. One thing we can say with absolute certainty is – whatever the outcome – we will also be hosting the festival online! We’ll keep you posted.
Finally, our final deadlines for 2021 festival submissions is almost up! You have until Tuesday, 2 February to get those submissions in. Submissions are via FilmFreeway at https://www.filmfreeway.com/oxisff
We’ll have plenty of exciting updates to share with you soon. We can’t wait for the time when we can all get together again but for now we hope you are all looking after yourselves and keeping safe!
