We're so happy The Blue Door has been selected for a second BAFTA recognised festival!

Encounters is the UK’s leading short film, animation and virtual reality festival.

The Blue Door will feature on the Late Lounge: Fright Night showcase, which you can find out more about that here

The festival discovers, supports and develops new talent in filmmaking, providing a platform for emerging and established filmmakers from around the world, and continues to be a unique meeting place for the industry.

The jam-packed programme in September presents a diverse selection of short film screenings, features, special guests, Q&As and headline events, alongside an intensive industry event programme with high level masterclasses and workshops.

At the heart of the festival lies the Encounters international competition – one of the world’s leading international competitions for short film, animation and virtual reality, and also an official gateway to the world’s most prestigious awards; the Academy Awards®, BAFTAs and the European Film Awards.
