Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival


Years running: 12 (since 2010)

Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival

International Film Festival.


Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is an international festival of experimental film and artists’ moving image. 

2015: We accept submissions of works related to any subject area, though this year we are especially interested in works that may relate to the “Spiritus Mundi”, a historical term for the ‘World Soul’ or ‘Spirit of the World’.


  • Experimental shorts,
  • Experimental features.


Our Festival is committed to remaining non-competitive in atmosphere – prizes and awards are not offered.


  • Although all submissions are considered, for the 2021 festival we favour films completed after 1 January 2020.
  • Premiere status is NOT required for our festival – our objective is to screen the highest quality work, regardless of where it has been seen before. However, we do appreciate the opportunity to host World, UK or Scottish premiere screenings and your film may get a higher profile slot in our programme if it is a premiere.
  • All submissions must be made through FilmFreeway or direct through our online form, providing evidence of your payment.
