Short Films at the Clacton Festival

Throughout the festival weekend, we will again be showing short films - and announcing on the Sunday the winner of the newly inaugurated award: The Golden Cockle. The winning film will be selected by the Festival Committee and the filmmaker will receive, along with the Golden Cockle award, a 30 first prize.


  1. Entries must be submitted to a member of the Festival Committee by 6pm on Saturday 12th July. But late submissions, up until the following Saturday, may be possible.
  2. Films should be on DVD, and the DVD itself should be marked with the film details.
  3. Films should be no longer than 20 mins in length, and be original work, produced in the year leading up to the festival.
  4. Unfortunately, submitted DVDs cannot be returned to the sender.
  5. Please send your DVDs to: Clacton Festival Committee, 488b Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 0EA.
