FILMMAKERS are being invited to submit their work for the Outwith Festival's Short Film Night.

Following on from last year's success, the event is back on September 8 and organisers are looking for fresh, UK-made short films to screen.

The evening will be hosted at Fire Station Creative and will offer the chance to meet and network with fellow filmmakers.

David Smith, who leads the Outwith film strand, said: “We’re thrilled that the Short Film Night is returning this year, and we believe it's going to be another unmissable event.

"We know there is a wealth of local filmmaking talent and we can't wait to look through the entries and put together an exciting and dynamic programme of short films.

The film programme for this year's Outwith Festival is shaping up to be our most exciting yet, and we can't wait to share more details on other events soon.”

The Film Night will be promoted on the Outwith website, programme and social media.

After clocking up four-star reviews, the festival now attracts local, national and international visitors and has become an eagerly anticipated event in Scotland’s cultural calendar.
