The BFI Futures Film Festival will take place in London on 18 and 19 February 2012, so apply now for your chance to be part of it.

  • Hi Leoni,

    All music used must be cleared first. A tip would be to find a piece of music from an IdeasTap member, or on MySpace, Soundcloud, etc. and ask permission from the musician.

  • Hi Richard,

    I'm afraid not. The person that applies must take the reins with the project.

  • Hello georginabobb

    You may submit more than once. However this will be judged by top industry professionals so I would advise to submit wisely. Show off one or two of your best work rather than everything you have ever created.
