#GenerationNow at BFI London Film Festival 2021

Specially selected from the BFI London Film Festival main programme, these short films explore what it means to be a young adult in the world today.

Issues of identity, gender, sexuality, family and community are examined in this collection of films that shine a light on the pressures facing young people. These short films showcase some of the brightest emerging filmmakers from around the world, as well as bold visions on destabilising rigid orders through self-assertion.

We are proud to present 10 films that are part of the #GenerationNow programme:

At Night We Fly (dir: Gert-Jan Verdeyen)
Babybangz (dir: Juliana Kasumu)
Femme (dir: Ng Choon Ping, Sam Freeman)
