call for submissions

Call for submissions from African Diaspora filmmakers wishing to have their films screened during Rapport Festival (28-30 June 2019). 

Rapport Festival is inviting African Diaspora/African Heritage filmmakers, producers, directors, writers, DOPs, narrative focussed animators … to submit their films to us.

Rapport Film Festival is a celebration of African Diaspora filmmakers. The content doesn’t have to be exclusively African Diaspora focused in nature. We’re looking for content that is a reflection of how the diaspora engage with the medium and sees the world. Film screenings will be held at Whirled Cinema, London, 28-30 June 2019.

Special deals for UK or Caribbean short film submissions.  Apply under UK Filmmakers Only – Shorts or Caribbean Filmmakers Only – Shorts categories.
