Screentest relies on sponsorship and admission fees to produce the events of the weekend and promote hundreds of promising young screenwriters, directors, producers, actors and everyone else who come together to make the films submitted to the festival.
As a result, there are a number of ways you can help us achieve the best possible event for 2016 and beyond, with additional exposure offered to our local supporters in central London.
Screentest is actively looking for sponsors to work with the festival, swapping our access to students and young people across the country and central London promotional opportunities for financial and in-kind support. Advertising space is available on tickets, crew t-shirts, programmes, banners, leaflets as well as on the stages and screens at the festival itself, and on this website.
Previous or current sponsors include Sub TV, Deloitte, Odeon, Cobra, Leopard Films, PRS, Production Base, The UK Film Council and Avid. We are looking to make 2016 the strongest festival to date and urge any interested parties to email firstname.lastname@example.org for a Sponsorship Pack.
Support also exists in the form of networking media partners. As a student festival one of the most important things we do is bring student filmmakers and professional film organisations and bodies together. Festival partner support includes; cross promotion on websites and social networking sites, guest speakers or judges or a workshop or screening at the festival itself. Festival partners have included: BAFTA, Shooting People, Encounters International Short Film Festival, London Film Academy. If you are interested in being a media partner then please email email@example.com.
FILMMAKERS AND STUDENTS
We would be nothing without the films shown at our festival and the people that attend the festival to watch. Last year students came from far and wide with large parties from Southampton, Westminster, Swansea, Nottingham and Sheffield. Everyone who came had appeared to enjoy themselves and we hope even more people will be encouraged to come and experience the festival firsthand for it’s second year in London. Our lavish(ish) awards ceremony is always a highlight and past prizes have included a copy of Avid editing software worth £1000, cases of Cobra Beer and work experience with Leopard Films!
The festival itself will be held in London on a weekend in March 2016. Further details on tickets, line-ups and accommodation will be posted on the website in the coming months.
Screentest is organised entirely by students and alumni and is always looking to recruit new members to help organise and hold this big event. If you study at a London based University (or any University, for that matter), and have some time to spare, then please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org to find out ways in which you can get involved.
We are particularly keen to speak to students from other London based Universities to help us reach the maximum number of students across the capital.
