10th BFI Future Film Festival
15-19 February 2017
The BFI Future Film Festival is the UK’s most important industry film festival for young filmmakers aged 16-25. Join us as we celebrate the festival’s 10th birthday in 2017.
We’re incredibly excited to announce that the BFI Future Film Festival will be celebrating its tenth edition next February, and we’re really proud to announce our first ever festival headline sponsor will be Blackmagic Design.
The festival will return to BFI Southbank with five full days of masterclasses, screenings, workshops, panels and Q&A’s, plus networking opportunities for young aspiring filmmakers aged 16-25. Last year more than 1,500 young people were joined by industry experts, special guests and emerging talent, offering industry insights and inspiration for festival goers to help them make great films and pursue potential careers in the film industry.
So whether you’re a filmmaking graduate, a Youtube content creator, a media studies student, or even if you’ve never picked up a camera before but just love film, there’ll be plenty for you to see, do and be part of at the 10th Future Film Festival.
Across the five days of the festival, there will be a variety of events and practical sessions for aspiring animators, actors, producers, writers, directors, production designers, cinematographers, editors, sound specialists and production and post-production technicians, and much more.
We’re putting together our programme for the festival right now, but if you’ve never been to the BFI Future Film Festival before why not check out last year’s highlights and programme?
And most importantly please remember to submit your short films to the festival with a chance to be a part of our 2017 programme. Entry is free, and we’ve got up to £25,000 worth of prizes including money to support your next film and your career as well as top of the range Blackmagic kit. We’ll be announcing full information about the festival awards shortly and we’re really excited to see your films submissions.
