Bluebird Pictures will be hosting their film festival for the second time in 2019. The World Cinema Film Festival is a celebration of community and culture in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Filmmakers are invited to submit a short film, documentary or animation under 20 minutes on the premise: 'What Does Culture Mean To You?' There will be an opportunity before you submit to answer why your short represents this theme.

The early bird deadline is 3 February, with judging taking place in May and June 2019, where winners will be invited to the festival to have their film screened and collect their trophy. The festival itself will screen a selection of shorts from all over the world over two days at the Barking Broadway Theatre, with talks from industry professionals, and film prizes on the day.
