The deadline for films for INK Festival 2018 is January 5th 2018 by midnight.

INK Festival 2018 will be on 7th & 8th April 2018 at the Halesworth Cut Theatre in Suffolk.

As East Anglia’s premiere short play and film new writing festival, we are thrilled to introduce new entry categories to the 2018 Festival, such as Musical Theatre, and ‘147’ themed play categories.

Together with the help of our sponsors, donors, Norfolk County Council and Arts Council England, as well as our Patrons Esther Freud and Helen Atkinson Wood, we saw overwhelming growth at INK Festival 2017. We are already anticipating the tidal wave of talent that the 2018 Festival will bring.

INK Festival 2017 saw 30 new works for stage and radio, poetry readings and films, our first award for a YOUNG WRITER, a fantastic line up of talks and workshops from industry professionals, and a brilliant children’s programme.

From pen to performance, our focus is on helping writers whose new work we really believe in, whatever their age, whatever their experience, and giving them opportunities to work with professional actors and directors.
