Encounters Festival is the UK’s leading short film, animation and virtual reality festival. Based in Bristol, UK, the festival takes place in September, presenting an annual International Competition showing the best new short and animated films from around the world, an Industry Forum offering masterclasses, panels and networking for filmmakers and professionals and an inspiring festival programme of screenings and events for everyone to enjoy.

Encounters Festival is the leading UK gateway to the world’s most prestigious short film and animation awards, and nominated filmmakers qualify for the BAFTAs, the Oscars®, the European Film Awards and the Cartoon d’Or. The festival discovers, supports and develops new talent in filmmaking, providing a platform for emerging and established filmmakers from around the world, whilst also connecting industry and audiences.

On how Creative Europe funding has helped them, Rich said:

"The funding enables us to cement our place as a European festival of significance for the filmmakers, the industry and audiences in general."

Encounters Festival received funding from Creative Europe through the previous MEDIA sub-programme, and most recently in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
