SEIFF 2018

Inaugural Festival

26-28 October, 2018

The first SATISFIED EYE International Film Festival was held over three days in the town of Epsom, Surrey, UK. The inaugural event attracted a large number of submissions of both completed films and unproduced screenplays from around 50 different countries. A judging panel of industry professionals and a “people’s choice” of local enthusiasts selected 34 films which shown at 12 sold-out screening events for the public. These included some UK and European premieres. Other events included a Star Wars-themed open-air launch, five Q&A sessions and workshops, and a gala dinner awards ceremony at which 27 awards were made to filmmakers, many of who were present. For a report on the festival by artistic director Chris Hastings, see THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.
