    I had a great experience with The London Rolling Film Festival, and not just because my short film ‘Squall’ was lucky enough to win some awards. Despite being online because of the pandemic, festival director Alida Pantone made sure there was still a real festival vibe across the event, with plenty of networking opportunities and industry panels/Q&A’s. My only regret is that I wasn’t able to experience the physical London event. Nonetheless, it was a pleasure to be part of the festival this year, and I thank Alida and her team for all their efforts.

The seminars were insightful and extremely helpful and masterly coordinated by the wonderful Alida and Rachele. This is such a fun and professional festival on the London circuit and stands out above others for its very accommodating hospitality and fabulous networking opportunities. This is an absolute gem of a festival. Get submitting now!
