WELCOME!!!

We’re back and we have missed you.

Welcome back to the Film Festival after a sad year away. 2019 was our best ever festival with great audiences, wonderful films and exciting guests.

In 2021 we plan to bring you an equally thrilling range of 65 films from all over the world – well, from at least 16 countries, showcasing the very best of cinema.

SUBMIT YOUR FILMS TODAY - Purbeck Shorts Competition

The Purbeck Shorts is the Purbeck Film Festival’s nail-biting Short Film Competition which takes place every October as part of our main event. We accept films in many genres and styles but the duration must be 10 minutes or less to qualify.
Our competition gives the filmmakers of tomorrow an opportunity to share their work on the big screen with an audience, and win cash prizes!
Our call for entries is now open and the final Competition night will take place at the Mowlem Theatre in Swanage on Friday, 29 October.
Films that are submitted are viewed by a preliminary judging panel and their finalists are then chosen for the screening event. The films are judged on this evening and the winners announced. The panel of Judges will be revealed here soon!
