Isle of Wight film festival calls for submissions

The Isle of Wight's Minghella Film Festival is now accepting submissions for next year's event.

Budding local film-makers can enter movies for inclusion in the prestigious festival up until January 29th 2011, Ventnor Blog reports.

Movie fans taking Isle of Wight holidays will be able to enjoy new productions from local talent when the event takes place between March 11th and 13th next year.

The main condition for entries is that all films must be shot on the Isle of Wight or made by islanders.

Established in 2009, the festival is named after celebrated British director Anthony Minghella and aims to continue his legacy.

Born on the Isle of Wight in 1954, he was responsible for highly acclaimed films such as The English Patient, The Talented Mr Ripley and Cold Mountain before his death in 2008.

The English Patient saw Minghella receive an Academy Award for best director in 1997.
