South East Region of the IAC

Three regional festival for you to enter your films   

Both SERIAC and the counties within our region hold their own festivals for all film makers within that county. These festivals are in addition to national festivals, and provide an invaluable opportunity to meet fellow film-makers and to show movies to a wider audience - with the added challenge of winning certificates and trophies.

Entries get critiques from experienced movie makers.


Entry for the 2021 festival is now open.  Unfortunately we are unsure if the actual festival will take place at the Oast.

However, as  2020, all films will be judged and notification made to those who have won.

2021 Competition




Kent has held its annual festival for film-makers at the Powell Theatre, Christ Church University. Canterbury for over 40 years and has provided amateur film-makers with the opportunity to show their films to appreciative audiences. We are looking for a team to run this prestigious festival in the future. Click here for KFF 2019 page

The Sussex Film Festival is an annual competition of films and videos made by people without professional resources. They may be members of clubs in Sussex and the Channel Islands or just groups and individuals living in these areas.  The Festival is held in the Autumn of each year in Mid Sussex, and is open to members of the public to come along and view the movies.

An amateur film or video is deemed to be one that is made with no profit motive involved and without professional assistance.
