    Another festival that offers really poor communication with film makers. I was a finalist in the festival yet some 6 weeks later have had zero notification on who won. The category I entered is also not listed on their website amongst the winners lists. Sadly it’s just another festival designed to fleece filmmakers of their money.

    Response from festival:

    Hi Ian

    My apologies if we have communicated poorly. I can actually see an e-mail thread where your messages were replied to within 24 hours so I can only apologise if there has been some kind of mistake here.

    I can also assure you that your category is online. We post all of the winners in the week after each Festival and London 2019 was no different. I can see you were nominated in VFX and also Cinematography and I'm afraid you didn't win in either. The following link was publicised across all of our Social Media accounts and this page has been viewed thousands of times by all of the attending Filmmakers ... http://www.filmfestinternational.com/london-iff-2019-winners/

    If you would like to discuss further, any concerns you have, please e-mail filmmaker@filmfestinternational.com.

    This is one of the best festival experiences I have had. The whole event is very well managed and the entire staff is very professional. The array of discussion panels proved informative and valuable. The location and accommodations for the event are excellent. Additionally, there are many international networking opportunities . This is a festival that truly loves film and filmmakers!
