MISSION & OBJECTIVE

In an industry with dozens of festivals, we pride ourselves in being different among the rest by actually adhering to what makes an event like this important...passion. We love film and the creativity required to produce cinematic works of art and likewise the enthusiasm among peers to watch and discuss films. We promote an atmosphere as well for likeminded people to socialize and remember what it is really all about...fun. Radical film is about engaging people to think and inspire them into questioning and challenging the status quo. Our festival is an arena for filmmakers who desire to provoke the social constructs of modern global society. This festival takes place in Norwich, England.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL


After a spectacular first year of earth-shaking cinema, the Norwich Radical Film Festival is back and open for submissions!
When we launched back in 2015, we announced ourselves as a true filmmaker's festival - and last year we more than made good on that promise. We hosted independent filmmakers from all corners of the earth. Directors, actors and producers flew from as far as Brasil, Los Angeles, Austria, New Zealand - even Ipswich - to see their projects on the big screen - many of whom have since been selected for prestigious festivals around the world. In 2016 we featured Brasil as it hosted the Olympics, amid an ongoing coup, and continued social unrest - in which our winning feature Brasil Meu Amor was set. The country of focus in our second year will be the United States, a nation in turmoil after a shock election victory propelled the vicious privateer Donald Trump to the White House in 2016.

In 2018, the US has its first opportunity to strike back at their new President at the polls, through the mid-term elections, as such it is the perfect time for us to use film to examine the rifts and struggles in US society, as well as parallels with the Theresa May's UK, and answer the question: what's to be done? Is it the end of the world? Is it the end of capitalism? Where do we go from here? We can't wait to see films produced in the US or produced in another country about the US to extrapolate these themes.

That being said, we hope that films from all countries about all subjects radical make their way into our lineup proving that cinema is one of the most provocative and intelligent art forms that can question and reinforce or even redefine our humanity....
