The annual Rainbow Film Festival in London, organised by the non-profit Rainbow Film Society aims to promote education of the arts, particularly in film and allied visual techniques. The 15th edition of the festival, slated for May 25-June 1, is opening its call for films from March 1-15. The competition will be in five categories: Best Film, Best Director, Best Audience award, Best Shorts and Best Documentary, says a press release.
While a number of films screened are particularly appropriate for families to enjoy, the festival also aims to attract all audiences interested in discovering foreign films; all the films at the festival have English subtitles.
The Society's main aim is to explore the history and the culture of other countries and their traditions and through a better understanding of cultural diversity, promote racial harmony and community cohesion.
The festival will be held at Genesis Cinema, Rich Mix Centre and in Tarling Centre, and plans are afoot to screen about 25 films including feature, short and documentaries. Film submission form, along with further information on the festival, are available at their web site, rainbowfilmsociety.com
