Local filmmakers will have the opportunity to showcase their work on the big screen as part of the St Neots Film Festival.

The event, at Cineworld in St Neots and Love's Farm House, takes place later in the year, but submissions are now open.

People of all ages are welcome to submit films, but entries must be the filmmaker's own work and be no more than 20 minutes in duration. The deadline for entries is October 30.

Festival organiser, Melina Lafirenze, said: "Imagine your film is going to be the last film left in the world. Do something impressive. Try out all of your ideas, at least one will shine out."

Short films can be submitted online at stneotsfilmfestival.co.uk.

The festival is to be held over three evenings: November 7/10 at Cineworld and November 11 at Love's Farm House.
