Welcome to the 12th BFI Future Film Festival - the UK’s most important film industry festival for young, emerging filmmakers!

Join us for four days of incredible masterclasses, industry workshops, panel Q&As and networking opportunities that will inspire you to make films and give you the industry insights you need to pursue a career in the film, TV and creative industries. The Festival programme has been specifically curated around four key themes this year: Storytelling, Production and Craft Skills, The Business of Film, and New Forms and Technologies, and all our events feature incredible film professionals from across the industry. Check out the full schedule of events.

We also screen the best short films submitted by talented young filmmakers aged 16-25 every day of the festival, carefully selected by our team of young programmers from over 1300 submissions from across the UK and around the world. See our full line up of films.

If you’re joining us this year, don’t forget to check out our feature film screenings, arrive in time for our Daily Morning Keynote speeches featuring incredible female filmmakers, drop into our 360 Igloo for immersive film experiences and talks (delivered in partnership with our friends Igloo Vision) and meet fellow filmmakers at our daily networking events with FREE DRINKS (proof of age required for alcohol obvs)!

See you there!

Tickets start at just £15 for a full day of festival activities. The day pass includes a selection of 12 events to choose from, as well as the daily keynote and networking event, or you can buy a full four day festival pass for just £45 and tap into all the festival has to offer.
