The London Rolling Film Festival is a a vibrant event in constant evolution. We showcase talented filmmakers and put them in contacts with industry professionals as actors, directors, producers, investors as well as make-up artists, fashion designers and journalists.

To keep it interesting (and fun) at each screening we will have a competition for Best Film, decided by popular vote at the end of the night, with the winner receiving a small cash prize.
Category Awards will be also assigned by a jury of industry professionals.

1. Criteria for entry:
We are happy to show films that have been screened previously and will also consider screening music videos and internet series (individual episodes). Our only rules are:

    Really enjoyed this festival. The event organisers did a great job of showcasing all the individual filmmakers and made a real focused effort on encouraging people to network and collaborate. The jury panel were really insightful and a treat to listen to as well. Would definitely enter & attend again!

  • Jamie Terry

    Had a fantastic time at the Rolling Film Festival. We felt really appreciated and privileged to have our film shown. We felt that the festival had some great finishing touches such as the pictures taken in front of the sponsor board, interviews on Facebook live and a pitching section to receive possible investments. Definitely worth sending your films into the festival.
