FUSE Film Applications are OPEN

05.05.2022  |  FUSE International

We’re thrilled to announce that applications for FUSE Film (part of FUSE International) 2022 celebrating the work of young filmmakers are now open!

It has been a difficult couple of years for so many and we can’t wait to experience the energy, inspiration and hope which young people and our festival audiences bring to Kingston once again. Last year we had over 600 applications, so after our success in 2021 we are thrilled to be back welcoming young people and all their creative visions once again. Sharing the creative talents of young filmmakers is more important than ever before and at the heart of our festival.

Across the globe there are many film festivals throughout the year, but few who have a true focus on young emerging filmmakers. FUSE Film is here to provide an affordable platform for young filmmakers to get one of their first experiences of a film festival. There is the opportunity to showcase your films to an audience in a stunning venue in Kingston and have your films watched by an industry panel and enter our awards.

Awards and Prizes: 

There are 4 different categories available for you to apply for:

Best Miniature Film (5 minutes or under)

Best Short Film (Between 10-15 minutes)

Best International Short Film (Under 15 minutes and not based in the UK)

Best Local Film (Under 15 minutes and based in Kingston or surrounding areas)

All applicants will have a response to their application by the end of May 2022

A selection of finalists will be chosen from each category by an industry panel. The finalists will be put forwards for our Film Awards. Each finalist’s film will be screened live and online from our website where you get the opportunity to see your film on the big screen. Then in the evening, the red carpet is rolled out for the award ceremony, where the announcements of the winner of each category will be revealed by some special guests.

Deadline: May 20 2022
