MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The UK Film Festival aims to champion great films but in particular is seeking work from those filmmakers who might not yet have had the chance for a prestigious public screening of their work.

Screening in the heart of London, we celebrate the cultural diversity of films made in the UK and welcome films from all over the World.

As a member of Universal Films and Festivals Organisation we ensure a fair selection and judging process.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Led by a jury of well respected professional filmmakers the UK Film Festival has quickly established a tradition of discovering and promoting great films - some of which have later gone on to be Oscar nominees and winners.

Our exciting screening events have created a networking hub that continues to connect new filmmakers to industry including television exposure by leading British broadcaster, Channel 4.
