The Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness-on-Windermere is calling on up and coming filmmakers to submit their short films to be shown on the big screen. For one night only the Theatre turns into a cinema for a Short Film Evening featuring films up to 15 minutes long.

The theatre says it doesn't mind if the films are old or new, documentaries or animation. They can already have been shown at film festivals or on the internet, but it's also be a chance to show something never seen before.

All films should be submitted in a digital format for the panel to view by 28 October.

For more information contact Theatre Manager Fliss Pocock info@oldlaundrytheatre.co.uk or call 08445 040604.
