Filmmakers and volunteers are being encouraged to take part in this year's Norwich Film Festival.
The event - which aims to inspire filmmakers and be a platform to show new work - will run from November 10 to 13 at The Forum.
People are now being encouraged to submit their films into the competition which has five different categories - short film, short student film, short animated film, short documentary film and short screenplay. Each category has a £200 prize and the chance for feedback from top industry professionals.
The festival is also running a one minute movie competition.
Craig Higgins, co-director of Norwich Film Festival, said: 'Norwich is a hive of artistic talent and it is great that we have a short film festival which will allow us to showcase not only local filmmakers work but also international submissions. The festival will allow filmmakers and film lovers an opportunity to come together to enjoy something different together, and will also help people to remember that Norwich is a creative hotspot of talent.'
