Foyle Film Festival Open Submissions For The 'Light In Motion' Competition
08 Mar 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Foyle Film Festival, Northern Ireland’s only Oscar®-affiliated film festival, is now accepting submissions for the 31st edition of the festival, which will run November 16th-25th 2018.

The prestigious Light In Motion (LIM) competition, sponsored by City of Derry Crystal, is open to filmmakers and animators across the world and will accept submissions up until Saturday 29 September 2018.

The three competition categories under LIM 2018 are:

  • Best Irish Short
  • Best International Short
  • Best Animation

Recipients of the LIM Awards qualify for consideration in the Short Film category of the Academy Awards® without needing the standard theatrical run. Foyle Film Festival is also an IMDb Qualifying Festival, granting all eligible film submissions a fast-tracked title page on IMDb.com.

Previous Foyle Film Festival winners and competitors who have proceeded to win the Oscar® include: Terry George for ‘The Shore’ (2012), Martin McDonagh for ‘Six Shoote’r (2006), Andrea Arnold for ‘Wasp’ (2004), Adam Elliot for ‘Harvie Krumpet’ (2003), and Eric Armstrong for ‘Chubbchubbs’ (2002).

The success continues with the 2018 Oscar® win for LIM Award finalist ‘The Silent Child’ directed by Chris Overton and the BAFTA nomination in the Short Animation catergory for LIM Award finalist Poles Apart, directed by Paloma Baeza and Ser En Low. 

Funded by the Department for Communities through Northern Ireland Screen and by Derry City and Strabane District Council, Foyle Film Festival delivers a comprehensive programme of documentaries, short films and feature films from all over the world; a full programme of educational events for schools, youth, and adults and a variety of industry networking events and panel discussions.

Now in its 31st year, it continues to be a platform for filmmakers, animators and artists to screen their films, network with industry professionals and gain access to the international market.

The 2018 LIM Award Winners will be announced at the festival’s closing night gala screening in Brunswick Moviebowl on November 25.

For further details contact the Competition Manager Eavan King (e.king@nervecentre.org).
