It is of paramount importance to us that all filmmakers are kept up-to-date with the progress of their film. As far as we are aware we have confirmed receipt of every film that has been entered and sent emails to every filmmaker about the progress of their film. However, sometimes these emails are missed, blocked or diverted to spam. If this is the case, please contact us so that we can welcome you properly and treat your film with the enormous respect it deserves. Thank you.

Official Selection
If your film is included in the Official Selection, congratulations! If your film is not included, while we imagine that you may be disappointed, please do not be disheartened as there has been a very fine line between those selected and those not selected. 

Films screened during the festival week are published here on 6th October 2019. Not all films on the Official Selection will be screened during the festival week, though all films from Official Selection will be screened at WFF screenings throughout the year, details of which will appear on the festival box office.

Attending the screening of your film

If your film is being screened during the festival week (between 11 – 16 Nov) could you please confirm before 10th October to myfilm@winchesterfilmfestival.com, 
if you can introduce your film at its screening in Winchester, and be available for a filmed interview prior to or after the screening. Details of the screening of your film will be published on the Box Office from 6th October. We strongly recommend that you attend the screening of your film if you are able to.

Unable to attend the screening of your film

If you are unable to attend the screening of your film, please send max 60 second video introduction to your film, to be showed prior to the screening of your film, to filmfile@winchesterfilmfestival.com

Awards and Prizes
All films included in the Official Selection will be eligible for the WFF_2019 awards. Films not screened during the festival week are no less likely to be award winners than those films screened during the festival week. The Winners and Special Mentions of each category will be announced  during the festival week.
