About Us

SCREENTEST: THE UK’S NATIONAL STUDENT FILM FESTIVAL was founded at Bristol University in 2004 and relocated to London in 2011 where we enjoyed another 5 brilliant years at London Southbank University. This year will be our 12th annual festival and we are also celebrating another change in venue as we partner with the University of Greenwich for our 2016 festival.

The Festival is held annually over a weekend in Spring and features a programme of not only over 100 student-made short films but also talks, workshops and bespoke screenings from a range of film industry organisations, including BAFTA and The BFI. The weekend’s highlight (aside from every single one of our superb films!) is our Awards ceremony, held on the Saturday evening, celebrating the best of student filmmaking from all over the UK.

This year, we are celebrating our 12th anniversary, making it the longest running fest of its kind – which is all rather exciting but we don’t have time to stop and think about it! So have a browse of our website, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and most importantly buy a ticket and come on down to our Festival, where we can promise an exciting and eclectic programme of films you won’t see anywhere else.

If there are any questions or you’d like to get involved in some way, shape or form (we’re always looking for Committee members, volunteers and sponsors!) then feel free to send us an email: info@screentestfest.org.uk.
