Monthly film submission opportunities

Unlike most screening nights The Neighbourhood will accept films completely blind. Due to the revolutionary nature of this epic film fantasia, they’ve formulated a set of eight (not ten) ‘The Neighbourhood Watch’ commandments:   1) You shall not submit a film any longer than five minutes.   2) Films must be have been made quite recently. Let’s say within the last six months.   3) Any genre of film shall be accepted, provided all rights to screen are owned by the filmmaker.   4) Slots shall be filled on a delightfully clichéd first-come-first-served basis. Filmmakers must register their submission by emailing no later than 22ndJune 2011.   5) All filmmakers must attend, and are invited to talk about their submission following the screening.   6) The order in which films are screened shall be selected at random, from an oversized hat.   7) There shall be a prize for the film deemed best of the night.   8) A humiliating forfeit shall be issued if any of these rules are broken.   The first ‘Neighbourhood Watch takes place onWednesday 27 July, 7-10pm and is repeated on the final Wednesday of each month (submission calls to follow). Admission is charged at £2 and includes popcorn and a drink. Contact VIVID...
