Calling all budding filmmakers!

As well as being famous for its brews, did you know that Burton is also the home of a host of film talent? Marston’s Brewery is celebrating with a very special film festival.

With legends such as Shane Meadows, Rich Yeomans and Paddy Consedine all beginning their filmmaking journeys in the brewing capital, there must be something in the water (or beer, of course!).

Marston’s Brewery is celebrating local and national film talent with Burton’s first ever Beertown Film Festival, championing up-and-coming filmmakers throughout the UK.

Entries are now open for the following categories:

  • Fiction (short)

The judging panel is made up of 13 local gurus, national heroes and film experts who’ll pick out the best of the best! There’s heaps of knowledge and experience between them! And there are some huge prizes are on offer, with £500 going to the winner of each category and £1,000 to the overall winner!

So, if you or anyone you know is a budding filmmaker, we want to hear from you. Check out for more info. Entries close on 31 March 2018.
