Each year we invite a special guest curator to select the best Liverpool made films that are submitted through an open call. This year we are very excited to be welcoming Wirral born, Turner Prize winning artist Mark Leckey to programme the 2013 Liverpool Film Night. 

Leckey's The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things took over The Bluecoat earlier this year with a collection of objects to explore how our relationships with artworks and common objects are being transformed through new technologies.

The submission process for LFN is incredibly simple, and open now! Filmmakers working in any medium are invited to submit their films for consideration. The film must have been made within the last 18 months and be no longer than 15 minutes in length. All genres are welcome, whether it’s drama, comedy, animation, documentary, experimental, music video or horror! 

Last year’s curator, filmmaker Martin Wallace, described Liverpool Film Night as ‘a near golden opportunity for filmmakers to have their work connect with an audience. This is real sharing. Anyone can throw a film on the Internet and get people to 'like' it, but which films can entertain a group of strangers in a darkened room? Which films can move them, challenge them and change them, by revealing a new angle on an age-old dilemma, or an exciting new way of thinking?’

Filmmakers whose work is chosen for LFN will receive £100 worth of credit from FACT Services who are kindly sponsoring the event. They offer everything you could ever need to make a film, for more info and their complete list of equipment, check out the Services section of the website.
