The Hastings Film Festival challenges you and your team to make a short film in just 5 days. All films are screened at the Electric Palace, with the winning ones shown at the Beach Screening, even better the winning film gets a CASH PRIZE!


The challenge starts at the Arts Forum where you will pick your film TITLE and GENRE from a hat. You have 5 days to script, film and edit your film. Return the completed film by 5pm on 31 July to the Arts Forum. If you are unable to make the launch we can send you the title and genre - there are no excuses.... The films will be judged by an expert panel. Make us laugh or make us cry - just come and have a go.



If you are aged 16 - 21years and would like to take part in the Film Challenge but would benefit from some FREE professional support in scripting, shooting and editing, we have joined forces with Toaster Productions and Neon Films to work with you to create your film, provide equipment and support you through the whole process. This is a unique opportunity to work with a professional studio but places are limited - please email us info@electricpalacecinema.com
