11th BFI Future Film Festival
15-18 February 2018
The UK’s most important film industry festival for young, emerging filmmakers is back with another jam-packed line up of events that will inspire you to make films and provide you with the industry insights you need to pursue a career in the film, TV and creative industries.
We have programmed events that span the breadth and depth of the film industry covering animation, fiction, docs and experimental filmmaking, with industry professionals representing a huge range of job roles taking part in interactive master classes, industry workshops, screenings and Q+A’s, as well as networking opportunities. Alongside some specially selected feature films we’ll be screening the best short films that have been submitted to this year’s BFI Future Film Festival (and that’s no easy task with over 2000 entries!) And we’ll be giving awards and prizes to some of the most talented emerging young filmmakers with films in the festival at this year’s Future Film awards ceremony on the evening of Thurs 15 Feb.
We are continuing our work of championing diversity in filmmaking throughout the festival and will be kicking off every day with a keynote speech by incredible female filmmakers.
We are also taking the BFI Future Film Festival into more international waters, thanks to the kind support of our friends at The London School of English. This year we’ll have TWO international awards to give away and we’ll be welcoming industry professionals from across the globe and partners from international film festivals to join us at BFI Southbank.
Tickets start at just £12 for a full day pass (which includes access to the daily Keynote speech, attendance at three events/screenings per day, the option to attend our daily networking drinks event, and access to our Behind the Scenes delegate area), or you can come to all four days for just £40. So, buy your ticket and kick start your film career now!
