Introduction to the film festival

The UK Film Festival is now BIFA qualifying,Any of our Official Selection British Features are now eligible to be nominated for a British Independent Film Award.The festival champions great films but is particularly seeking work from those filmmakers who might not yet have had a prestigious public screening of their work. Screening in the heart of London UKFF welcomes films of all types from all over the World - connecting up-and-coming filmmakers with more established names such as Judi Dench, Dustin Hoffman, James Corden, Bill Nighy and their most recent winners – Timothy Spall, Steven Berkoff and Willem Dafoe. (Seen above: Willem Dafoe, receiving The UKFF Edgeware Award for Best Actor; and director Marieke Englehardt winning the UKFF Edgeware Award for Best British Short Film)。 Mat Kirkby, Oscar Winner and Director at Ridley Scott Associates states that "The UK Film Festival is the most focused, passionate and quality driven film festival in the UK. Their invaluable support helped get me to the Oscars in 2015, where I won the Academy Award for best short film." With a programme that showcases new talent alongside established directors, filmmakers and actors UKFF is a lively networking hub. Over the last 10 years UKFF has quickly become a career stepping stone, establishing a tradition of discovering and promoting films which have gone on to be Oscar and BAFTA nominees and winners. The script competitions have also made a big impact - four scripts have been optioned and two have been produced and gone on to win multiple awards and gained prestigious distribution deals. Led by a jury of well respected professional filmmakers and as a member of Universal Films and Festivals Organisation we ensure a fair selection and judging process. 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.Sfilmmaker is our exclusive platform for cooperation in China, and we look forward to your good film.
