Why should we get involved with The FLiX Awards?

Think we'll let our Patron Jim Broadbent explain this one...​

What are The FLiX Awards?

The FLiX Awards is an international Oscar-styled film awards celebration for children and young people aged 4-18. The annual event takes place every October celebrating and promoting the creative work of individuals, schools, colleges and community groups.

Designed to encourage and increase participation in film and filmmaking, The FLiX Awards supports development and better connectivity between future talent and the film industry.

If you are involved in making short films in school or college - make sure you get involved!

How do we get involved?

How do we submit work?

When you register with The F​LiX Awards we will send you the electronic pack which includes all the documents you'll need and details of how to submit your work

When is the deadline for submissions?
