    London Experimental supports avant-garde film. Thrilled to have my Surrealist abstract hand-made experimental films chosen by this cool 'anti-festival.' Thank you for supporting truly underground art films Otis, and stay safe!

  • Like almost every other film festival in the world, London Experimental has had to make adjustments based on the pandemic. I appreciate the fact that they are working to find innovative ways to present cutting edge experimental films to their audiences, despite the difficulties of the present moment. Communication has been very good - proud to be a part of this effort to keep things positive and keep things going, for the benefit of experimental film fans everywhere!

    Nothing to review. Website still says the 2020 festival is "TBC"
