BFI Future Film Festival

Posted on 22 August 2013

Submissions for the 7th BFI Future Film Festival are now open!

Every February, the BFI hosts the Future Film Festival – it has a packed line up of workshops, masterclasses, networking opportunities, screenings and Q&As and is held at BFI Southbank. Every session is designed to inspire and develop your film knowledge and skills.

They also invite young filmmakers to submit their short fiction, animation and documentary films for consideration at the Future Film Awards.

The best films are shown during the Festival in front of a panel of industry experts who give feedback and advice.

We also give awards to the best short films we screen at the festival, and this year we have six £500 prizes to give away!

So, if you’re a young filmmaker of fiction, animation or documentary short films submit them to the 7th BFI Future Film Festival. If your film is selected they’ll screen it in one of the cinemas at BFI Southbank during the festival and you could be up for one of our awards where a panel of industry experts will give feedback and advice and you could win £500!

The categories are as follows:

  • Best Fiction (15-18 age category)
  • Best Fiction (19-25 age category)
  • Best Animation (15-18 age category)
  • Best Animation (19-25 age category)
  • Best Documentary (15-18 age category)
