London Lift-Off Film Festival is the longest-running Lift-Off event. The fastest-growing film festival in Europe aims to showcase our filmmaker talents with a week-long celebration in a 100% audience choice awards platform at several interesting and prestigious London screening locations.

Having had our home at some of London's most prestigious screening locations, it remains one of the best attended and press exposed Lift-Offs on the network.

For more information, please head to our website:

The films are scored and the top voted films are then promoted into our internal Network Round, where the Jury and our Network's Professional Members vote for the winners. Winners are announced, prizes and Season Award Nominations are given for the content chosen during this final round.

Lift-Off Season Award Nominations are handed out based on merit within each category and are judged against the current crop of nominations we have so far from our City based festivals this Season. Digital online submission screeners only. Feedback is sent shortly after the commencement of the festival.

Aside from the accolade of winning out of all of the Lift-Off Festivals from every programme screening physical or online, the winning films will commence around the world tour where it will be screened at each and every Lift-Off Film Festival during the forthcoming season.

If you pay a submission fee, we will screen your work. Our programme's are separated into categories based on your content's level of storytelling, production value, message and acting. During the festival we have two voting committees - our professional jury and the general public.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our online festivals are NOT a pay for vote platform. If you invite your friends and family to watch either the physical or online screenings it is encouraged that they engage with as much of the content as possible and vote accordingly. This is why two votes are always counted from each audience member with both votes resulting in 1 point for each film. We are doing our best to invite new and exciting audiences to genuine indie film content - if you can encourage your audiences to do the same we will build a wonderful network of opportunity for all, no matter where you are starting out.

Proudly, we have no other restrictions for your work. This includes your work's premier status, it's age and/or whether your work has been made available online.

    Great festival, and really pleased our Feature Documentary 'Steel Spirits' has got through to the final stages. We really like the YouTube videos that you guys do, really helpful when it comes to how to fund your film, and get it distributed, always really informative. Looking forward to the winners being announced!
