The Lancaster Film New Media Festival is a new event, which grew from a
pilot scheme held by the BEST centres in Lancaster last year.

to all new and established filmmakers and new media producers working in the
field of the moving image.

Selected submissions from Lancashire and Cumbria are being screened in four
categories :

With six new awards to be announced at the awards ceremony on Sunday 13th

An independent selection panel included Ian Aspin (421 Films)The Three Bears
(Bryony, Cadi & LinnheCatlow)Tom Holley
(Huddersfield New Media Centre).

presentation, using computer interfaces and often online distribution to
bring a more cutting edge to the Festival.
