About the Harvest Short Film Competition 2017

Harvest Film Festival is hosting the competition of short films on the themes of farming, food and land. A selection of submissions will be showcased at the festival, to be held at Lower Hewood Farm in late October 2017, and will then tour to a venue in London (tbc) and other venues in the West country in November.

We are keen to hear from emerging and established filmmakers using a range of approaches and from any genre including documentary, drama, animation, experimental or artist film.

First prize: £1000 and a week-long residency at Lower Hewood Farm to work on a project of your choice.

Second prize: £250 and a selection of produce from Lower Hewood Farm.

Third prize: £100 and a selection of produce from Lower Hewood Farm.

Harvest Short Film Competition judges: Robin Baker (Head Curator for the BFI National Film Archive), Hope Dickson Leach (filmmaker) and Robert Macfarlane (writer).

The deadline for submissions is midnight Friday 4th August 2017.
