Super 30, Review: Inequality, equality and variable quality

Super 30, Review: Inequality, equality and variable quality Two basic tenets form the paradigm of Super 30: a real-life story about a nondescript do-gooder who is a super achiever must strike a chord with audiences, and, secondly, any tale of a low caste and poverty-stricken protagonist, sacrificing his lady love and filthy lucre for the cause of educating fellow under-privileged ‘untouchables’ in his society, will have them rooting for the unlikely hero. How these doctrines pan o...

The Sense of an Ending, Review by Siraj Syed: Sensible transition from novel to film

The Sense of an Ending, Review by Siraj Syed: Sensible transition from novel to film Many a times, tragic-romantic novels that get made into films tend to be laboured and over ‘textualised’. Not so the The Sense of an Ending. Indian director Ritesh Batra keeps this British film largely simple and lets his actors carry it forward, which works well. A simple story with a tragic and profound undercurrent of regret, the film does not have too much to offer, but gets its basics right. ...

The Cambridge Strawberry Shorts Film Festival

A CALL FOR ENTRIES TO:

THE CAMBRIDGE STRAWBERRY SHORTS FILM FESTIVAL 2017

It is with great pleasure to announce that we will be holding The 2017 Cambridge Strawberry Shorts Film Festival on the evening of Friday 2nd June.

Cambridge Strawberry Shorts is a well established and respected short film festival run under the umbrella of Cambridge Cinema Shorts. The festival is an important event in the Cambridge City calender. It enjoys national support and has international recognition. Each year we try to add a little extra, keeping it fresh and alive, and encouraging continued interest with year round supporting events.

This year there will be  three awards presented, The Judges Award, The Audience Award and a new award added late into the last years selection process, The Viewing Panel Award (who better to judge, we watch every film submitted, many of them several times). The winners of all three will be announced at the end of the festival.

Because of time restrictions and programming considerations many films submitted cannot, but deserve to be included in the festival. To redress this injustice commendations will be awarded. A listing will be published in the programme, film makers informed and all these films will be screened at public events in Cambridge over the rest of the year.

Films can be of any genre but should be less than 20 minutes long. There is no submission fee so long as entries are submitted to us on DVD's, (see below for alternative submission method).

Strawberry Shorts is a genuine festival complete with an enthusiastic audience and good press coverage. Close of entry is Saturday 8th April. 2017

This year we have buckled to the increasing pressure to except downloads. That said, its not all good news for the 'press button to submit' fans, as, where Strawberry Shorts will remain a free to enter festival for DVD submissions because of the considerable amount of time, expense and bother on line submissions cause us we will have to charge a fee for submission by download. (See submissions page for details)

All films received will be watched and considered by the viewing panel and the final selection will be screened at the festival.

To determine The Audience Award all members will receive voting slips on arrival at the festival and will be asked to join in the voting procedure at the end of the screening. Winners of all awards will then be announced at the close of the festival.

Further details of venue and times will be available closer to date, so please continue to visit our web site for information and news on this and other forthcoming events.
