    The film selection was good however I felt like there weren't many networking opportunities and it would have been nice to see or talk to the filmmakers in a Q&A.

  • I was delighted to have my film selected and screened at the LISFF, Kino Bermondsey. The venue is stylish and intimate and all of us enjoyed our evening there. All communication from the festival was superb. This is a well organised and friendly festival and highly recommended!

    I had the privilege of our film, 'Seared' being selected for this year's festival. Although I was unable to attend, the staff I spoke with were all lovely. They allowed me to Dropbox my film for easy delivery. I truly hope I can attend next time!
