  • I am delighted that my documentary Beacon Farms was selected for FFI London and won the award for Science and Education. Communication was good overall but a little last minute when it came to confirming the location of the 3 day event, which took place at the Hilton Docklands in London. During the event they screened a good selection of the nominated films, ending with a charming awards dinner, where we met a wonderful mix of international filmmakers. Highly recommend this festival.

  • This festival took my money but i literally never heard a single thing from them again. Their website is painfully outdated, a lot of the links don't work, the information is old. All i am to assume is they are a scam, all these other reviews here are so old.
