Last year, the NLFF shorts programme, New Directions, screened to a sell-out audience at Tyneside Cinema and welcomed six of the UK's hottest young directors to the Festival, including Joe Tucker (For the Love of God), Sean Conway (Alex and Her A*** Truck) and Zam Salim (Laid Off).
NLFF now accepts entries from all over the world, and showcases work in all genres and visual forms, including narrative, documentary, experimental and designoriented work.
Showcasing the very best of Baltic, Scandinavian and Northern European cinema, NLFF
will feature additional screenings and events at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and St Paul's Church, Jarrow.
