About Farmfest2015 sees Farmfest celebrating its 10th birthday and a lot has happened in that time. From humble beginnings to West Country staple, Farmfest has always stayed true to itself, focusing on good music, good times and most importantly, good people. It’s the people that make Farmfest, the great vibes, the great times and the stories in-between. These are the reasons we are proud to present our new film competition, 10-for-10.What is 10-for-10? 10-for-10 is the chance for emerging and local filmmakers to showcase their skills as videographers. Our 10 selected finalists will receive £150 (minimum) to cover expenses and full access to the site to realise their proposed film. The 10 final films will then be showcased in a premiere screening event held in Bruton, just down the road from the Farmfest site, in November. After voting has finished, the lucky winner will receive £500 along with publicity through Farmfest and potential help with further film festival entries. The aim is to create 10 films, capturing 10 unique viewpoints, from 10 different creative perspecives. 10 different narratives on what the convergence of 5000 people creates or means to different individuals. Be it short and sweet, abstract, atmospheric or full blown Louis Theroux investigation. 1 minute to 100 minutes, the choice was theirs. The simpler and more focused the idea, the better.
