   VIP Events

Our VIP events give you the filmmaker the chance to feel what it is like to be at those exclusive parties.


Our VIP Pass will allow you to sit in VIP areas and mingle with your fellow filmmakers,

and enjoy the lifestyle of the rich and famous, or at least as close as we can get to it!


Our VIP events for 2018 are:


Arrival Drinks Room2


A Night at the Casino


Cocktail-Making Masterclass (with free cocktails!) Orange Rooms


Ghost Tour of Southampton with food and drink at Room2


And of course our 

Black Tie Awards Dinner and Afterparty 

to finish the festival!




Our closing Awards Ceremony promises an evening of celebration, fun and good old fashioned glamour! What more could you ask for… a trophy? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see!


St Mary’s, the home stadium of Premier League club Southampton F.C. will be hosting our celebration with the promise of great food and drink, alongside live music from local Southampton act James Tattington who promises to have you up on the dance floor (hopefully with that trophy under your arm)


The event will run as follows:


4:00pm Drinks Reception


5:00pm Awards Presentation


7:30pm Dinner Served


9:00pm After Party with Live Music


Please note:

This event is formal so please note that no casual wear is permitted on the evening.

While we do not discriminate against genders we do ask that you wear either a suit with jacket and tie/bow tie, or a formal/cocktail dress.

No late entry will be permitted after 5pm.
