At the beginning of each month, Filmwire shines a light on film activity and spaces dedicated to film culture that you may not otherwise hear about. It’s the only place where you can peruse the new features, shorts, one-off events, jobs, submission deadlines and other opportunities available in the middle of the country all in the same place!

What’s more is it’s 100% free!
