Brighton Rocks International Film Festival (BRIFF) welcomes submissions for the 5th year running.​​ ​ BRIFF is a young festival with big ambition – to become the UK’s main festival for indie and underground cinema. The city of Brighton is a mecca for artists and creatives from all walks of life. It is also a state of mind, an attitude, a spirit: one that dares to be itself. If your film embodies our ideals and aspirations, we want to help it get the recognition it deserves! When you submit to Brighton Rocks, we pledge that your film will be reviewed by professionals with TLC. Our primary concern is how best to curate and screen your work. The 5th Annual Festival is scheduled for 22-24 July 2022. In addition to multiple screenings, attendees will enjoy talks, networking sessions and the chance to socialise with fellow filmmakers in Brighton. Our venue, RIALTO, is a former Gothic Chapel in the heart of Brighton that is now a bohemian and stylish theatre. It boasts a 90 seat auditorium, beautiful art deco bar and labyrinth of corridors, making it the perfect place to get your creative juices flowing. OFFICIAL SELECTIONS will be notified throughout the year. FINALISTS will be announced on 26 June 2022. WINNERS will be revealed ​at the Festival 22-24 July 2022. Brighton Rocks' 4th Festival (23-25 July 2021) screened 125 films to an audience of more than 250 attendees. Please see for more information.
