REGISTER to attend the event on the evening of December 4, at the Prince Charles Cinema in London, to see the 10 best entries shown on the big screen with a full lineup of guest speakers and cinema presentations. Please note : Entries to show your films are now closed but we still have a few seats available.

When I announced the Movie Machine Digital Cinema Festival in late October, I had no idea what the response would be. Would there be any entries – was there any appetite for this kind of thing in the modern world.

I’m pleased to say we have had a fantastic response with entries from all over the world: movie submissions from the UK,USA, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Canada, Australia, from far flung corners of the world to where one would least expect to find passionate filmmakers, yet the same passion for filmmaking exists everywhere. This is what is obvious from the movies submitted.

And there is good content to view! We have many films of seriously high quality, running between 1 and 5 minutes.

On the night of Dec. 4 at the Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square, London we will show the 10 best films.

The judges, there are 5 in total, are busy watching, viewing and putting in their verdict for each of the films. The films are judged on cinematic merits including execution of story, camerawork, lighting, use of sound and editing technique.

The winner of the festival will be announced the evening of December 4, at the Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square, London.

1st Prize for best film is a Blackmagic Cinema Camera, courtesy of Holdan.

Register now to attend the Movie Machine Digital Cinema Festival and see the best 10 films shown on the big screen – along with guest speakers, cinema presentations, and footage from many different cameras, including: the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Camera, Digital Bolex, Canon 5D Mark III, Canon C100, Sony PMW-F3, PMW-F5, RED Epic and more! Everything from “affordable cinema cameras” to “not-so-affordable” cinema cameras.

Hope to see you in the heart of London, 7.30pm, Dec, 4.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
