Oxford Film Festival is looking for Oxford-based story ideas for the seventh annual community film that will be made in conjunction with the 14th Annual Oxford Film Festival. Every year, the Oxford Film Festival, in conjunction with the OxFilm Society, produces and supports a community film that showcases the film talents of the Oxford community and provides opportunities for community members to gain experience working on a film and learning how a film is made. The completed film is then screened multiple times during the annual Oxford Film Festival, giving audiences the ability to experience the fruit of the community's creativity.
This year, the festival is looking to base the narrative of the community film around a story about Oxford and the people who live in or have lived in Oxford. If you have a family story or a folk-tale about Oxford, it’s inhabitants, or the surrounding area, Oxford Film Festival wants to hear it!
Story ideas can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions can be a simple sentence or a paragraph that highlights the story, or a full script if you have it lying around! Please include your name, number, and email address with the submission.
Deadline is April 15, 2016. The selected concept will be announced shortly after and a script will be drawn up in an OxFilm Society workshop.
