One of the key features of Fear in the Fens is that it offers local filmmakers the opportunity to show their films on the big screen
to a festival audience.

We also have a public vote for the best film, which is awarded the Golden Shuck. Festival Laurels and awards can both help filmmakers get attention for their films, so we are pleased do what we can to help.


Also, unlike many festivals, there is no fee to submit a film.
