Encounters receives Film Festivals funding for eighth year running

In the latest round of funding from Creative Europe’s Film Festivals scheme, Bristol-based Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival receives support for the eighth year running.

In total, 35 festivals from 20 countries share grants totaling €1,672,000. The scheme supports festivals that programme a majority of European films from a wide range of countries, in particular those that demonstrate a commitment to developing new audiences and increasing levels of film literacy through various outreach activities.

Encounters will return to Bristol between 25 and 30 September 2018. The call for submissions is open until 1 June. Find out more about how to enter your film on their website
