Oxford Film Festival Searching for Competent Screeners

Organizers of the Oxford Film Festival are looking for competent screeners to view film entries for the 2017 festival which will be held in February of next year.

A website has been set up (OxfordFF) where interested screeners can supply their information. Once approved, screeners will be set up on Film Freeway which will allow them to view potential films online and rate them for festival organizers to scrutinize.

Oxford Film Festival_OFFThe submission deadline for screeners is November 15, and OFF organizers will be notifying filmmakers of their acceptance into the festival by the first week of December.

With that in mind, the ideal time to view the plethora of films expected to be submitted is between May 1 and November 15.

Organizers would like to remind those interested in reviewing next year’s slate of films, be prepared and able to devote 2-3 hours each week to the viewing process. It could take 5 months or more to complete the entire list of films.

If that particular task is too daunting, there are numerous other volunteer opportunities available.
