Founded in 2006, the festival takes a look at the best in independent films, and this year is set to be the biggest event yet.
A unique mixture of fresh filmmakers and Academy Award winners make up the 16,000+ community involved in the festival. From 1st – 5th September 2017, some of the industry’s most creative minds are set to take London by storm for a celebration of short film at Calvert 22 Space in Shoreditch, East London.
A combination of screenings, masterclasses, panel discussions and a series of infamous parties make this an unmissable highlight of the film calendar.
The theme of this year’s festival is Dimensions of Diversity, signaling a global expansion for the event and a world view that effects all our futures. Looking at unknown cultures, traditions, histories and people, the aim is to give exposure to lesser known voices.
The capital is set for a busy few months as the London Film Festival will begin in October, followed by Raindance and Hot Docs season.
