SHORT FILM SUBMISSION

  • Have an animation short to premiere/feature online, and need a comprehensive presentation (in the form of interview/review)? Zippy Frames is a trusted independent animation news website, which has featured a vast array of short animation films, from the more narrative to the outright experimental ones. Send us your film for consideration

CONSULTANCY AND FESTIVAL SUBMISSIONS FOR ANIMATION SHORTS

  • Animation festival submission seems both a laborious and a mindless process for independent animation filmmakers. We can make the process seem more structured, less laborious and more promising for your festival career of your film - handled by the same people who manage Zippy Frames (via Scheriaa Productions)

FESTIVAL PROMOTION

  • Zippy Frames hosts an extended database of call for entries from animation festivals. A large part of its news roundup covers animation festivals and film festival news.

If you're interested in getting in talks and an offer for a festival promotion agreement, contact our Head Editor (vassilis AT zippyframes DOT com)

VIDEO REPORTS

  • For festivals, conferences, film promotions, companies and products related to the animation industry, we offer reviews, interviews or video reports that promote your services or products in a creative and friendly way. For more info, email: info AT zippyframes DOT com

Coronavirus crisis response: In line with the UK Government and Scottish Government’s public health advice we are sad to announce that we are postponing the 74th EIFF due to take place in June. We are looking at which elements of the Festival can be delivered later in the year and hope to share news on that in due course.

“We are looking at which elements of the Festival may be delivered later in the year and we will keep you informed as plans develop.  For now, we would like to thank our funders, sponsors, partners, staff, donors, patrons, filmmakers, sales agents, distributors and audiences for their loyalty, support and understanding in these unprecedented times.”

SHORT FILM AWARDS

The Award for Best Short Film: The Award for Best Short Film affirms EIFF’s long-standing support of directors of short films and is intended both to recognise the outstanding achievements possible within the short format and to offer encouragement for the feature filmmakers of the future. The award, which carries a cash prize, is open to short-form, live-action fiction, documentary, experimental and animated films and will be decided by a jury of respected film professionals.

The McLaren Award for New British Animation: Inaugurated in 1990, the McLaren Award for New British Animation provides a focus for new British short animation and recognises the spirit of creativity. The award, named in honour of Norman McLaren, the renowned Scottish-born animator and innovator, is decided by audience vote.

Short ANIMATION submissions are split into UK and International:

  • UK Short Animations have NO premiere restrictions. Films CAN have previously been publicly screened, broadcast or otherwise made publicly available (including online) in the UK.
  • INTERNATIONAL Short Animations must be UK PREMIERES. EIFF is particularly interested in world, international or European premieres. These films CANNOT have previously been publicly screened, broadcast or otherwise made publicly available (including online) in the UK.
