London International Filmmaker Festival 2021

March 15th - 19th 2021


The London International Filmmaker Festival is one of the most rewarding and helpful festivals in Europe for international emerging artists and experienced creators to be a part of. After 4 immensely successful years, our events have attracted a wealth of talent from around the world. We have been helping filmmakers find distribution and funding for their next filmmaking venture. Year after year, we are praised by filmmakers for the opportunities that unlock upon entering and participating in our festival.

There is ample opportunity to attend networking events, industry professional talk panels, workshops, guest speaker events, film premieres, financing talks, director Q&A's, film screenings and to socialize with like-minded creatives from all walks of life. All of this is neatly wrapped in a week-long showcasing of films where our strong community supports any and every film, from first-time artists to seasoned creators. We are a unique festival that provides a real platform for filmmakers to meet, network and do business during the festival week.

We have built a small but exceptional network of industry professionals that will look at all films entered and will give business and commercial advice. There are countless success stories of filmmakers securing distribution for their films, launching them and their work into the marketplace. We have the people and skills in our professional team to make this happen. We can create a ripple for your movie to be seen around the United Kingdom, Europe and beyond. It all starts here by entering today.

Festival Programme


All the films in the festival will be available for viewing throughout festival week on Vimeo. Links and passwords will be sent to all ticket holders ready for Monday March 15th. Films will be available to watch until the end of the Festival on March 19th.


We're taking a different approach to conferences for the London IFF 2021 online edition. We have pre-recorded masterclass videos on a wide range of topics and all videos will be available to watch for the duration of the Festival. During previous online Festivals we have hosted we have found that time differences around the world have prevented everyone from being involved, so this time around we're making everything available for the entire week. All information will be e-mailed in time for March 12th.


The live awards event will be streamed on Zoom at 4pm (UK time) on March 19th.
