Student Films and Scripts

ECF will also be hosting a special screening event for student films. There is such a vast catalog of good quality student films and scripts out there at the moment but due to issues such as budget restraints, these projects often don’t get the publicity they need and deserve. ECF wants to provide a platform for these projects so will be offering free submission to all Film Schools and Universities to submit their best student projects. These projects will then be featured in a dedicated event at ECF and will be viewed by not only film fans but also by the professionals that is often hard to reach such as distributors and investors. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to get maximum exposure for their films and scripts.


Workshops and Panels

ECF wants to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and experience that will be in attendance so there will be a wide range of workshops and panel discussions happening throughout the week that all are invited to attend. There will be lots of different speakers hosting the workshops and discussions, covering many important film and script related topics. The information gained at these talks can be vital and should not be missed! So whether you’re currently looking for distribution for your film, if you have a script that you want brought to life or even if you would just like to learn more about the process of film creation e.g. lighting, editing, sound etc, then be sure to attend the workshops!

Red Carpet and Opening Ceremony

The European Cinema Festival will begin with a prestigious Red Carpet and Opening Ceremony on the 6th and 7th of December 2019. This will be the first chance for exhibitors and filmmakers to meet and plan how they will spend their time at the European Cinema Festival.

Film Screenings

There will be film screenings held on every day of the ECF so there will be multiple opportunities for both film companies and film-goers to attend screenings and see all of the great films that will be on offer.
