2021 Submission is now CLOSED
How to guide
We suggest leaving an hour to be able to submit your film!
1 - This year we are accepting submissions on FilmFreeway. Before you submit your film you will need to create an account, this is quick, easy, free and can be done in advance of the Challenge. Follow the SUBMIT HERE! button at the bottom of this page to set up your account.
2- When you submit your film we request that you upload the film directly to FilmFreeway, this will make it easier for our team to access and review the films.
2A - Please title you film "Title - Group/individual name"
3- After the Challenge we will be requesting (via FilmFreeway) to Download your film. Please give us permission so we can curate the film festival and Finale.
4 - You will need a registration PASSWORD to be able to submit your film to us. This will be announced along with the Prompts at 7pm (BST) Friday 27 AUG.
5 - Please reread the rules of the Challenge to make sure your film qualifies for judging.
6 - This year we are requesting that if you have time to please try and SUBTITLE your films, we want this Challenge to be as inclusive as possible.
7- We will have team members on standby to help over the weekend but can not guarantee how quickly we will be able to respond to problems. Please refer to the FAQs on the website first as you may find your answer here.
8 - This is FilmFreeway's advice on film formats.
FilmFreeway accepts all major video formats in full quality HD up to 10 GB.
9- If you are entering an additional Category (ie, Best of Bristol, 16-21, Under 15) please submit your film to the specific category. You will still be judged as part of the main Challenge and eligible for Top Ten and Placement. If you are not entering an additional category please submit your film to the "Bristol 48h Puppet Film Challenge" Category.
10 - If you wish to enter one or more additional Categories (ie Best of Bristol and an Age Category) please select one and write the other in the option box on the submission form on FilmFreeway.
