Although we publish one deadline on the website, Withoutabox
members will have access to extended deadlines and
early-bird deadlines with further discounted entry fees.
Entry Fees. We are a
totally independent event. We are happy to justify our entry fees
to anyone who questions them. We try to keep them inline with other
festivals, we consult filmmakers and can assure you that money raised
always goes into the mechanism of the festival, towards supporting
filmmaker attendance and the delivery of a great independent programme.
Filmstock is a non-profit event.
We watch everything
that comes through the door and notify everyone who enters whether
they have been successful or not. We are filmmakers and know it is
always good to hear either way, so it doesn’t feel like your
film has disappeared. We do this film by film, one at a time, to try
and ensure no one slips through the net. If you don’t hear from
us feel free to send us an email.
If successful you will be required to send an exhibition format, or
if you wish to screen in DVD, we will need a second copy. No
We can screen Beta SP (PAL),
DV (PAL & NTSC)
and DVD (All Regions).
Please be assured, our projection system for all formats (in particular
DVD) is fantastic, and we work very hard to prepare and test all tapes
before screening. We have been on the receiving end of lazy projection
and it is not fun. Feel free to include
notes to the projectionist with your exhibition copy. He
likes chocolate too.
like contact. For the selected films we will send
you all the info you need to have a good Filmstock experience, whether
you will be at the festival or not. We are here to make your screening
and time at Filmstock like no other. We
invite you to get involved.
We like stuff. Feel
free to send us your flyers, postcards,
badges, gadgets, gizmos, posters or any other bits
you are using to promote your film. The earlier the better, but please
do not send this stuff until you have been accepted. (Please
do not send actors in the mail)
