Greetings Filmmakers

Submissions are now open for the London-X4 Seasonal Short Film Festival.

The London-X4 Seasonal Short Film Festival is a seasonal festival that screens fantastic films in the creative heart of London, UK. It is curated by WWCSFF Film Festivals, the same team that produces the annual London-Worldwide Comedy Short Film Festival, the UK Seasonal Short Film Festival and the Asia South East-Short Film Festival.

The directors of the festival are filmmakers, performers and marketers who have been involved in the media industry for over 15 years. It's a great pleasure to be able to screen rising talents and their work and to see audiences appreciate their output. We also endeavour to help our officially selected films gain wider notice within the industry at large.

We offer awards in these categories:
- Drama Short
- Comedy Short
- Documentary Short
- Animation Short
- Horror Short
- Music Video
- Experimental Short
- Action / Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Short
&
- UK Short Film
- North American Short Film
- European Short Film
- Student Short Film
- Longer Short Film (15 - 30 minutes)
- Shorter Short Film (under 2 minutes)
- Young Filmmaker Short

& for these skills

– Best Film Direction
– Best Film Script
– Best Film Female Performance
– Best Film Male Performance
– Best Film Production
– Best Film Originality

Our festival gives our London audiences a chance to see the wide variety of fantastic short films that are being produced around the world. We accept any genre from drama to action to horror to documentary to comedy to animation and we prize originality above all. We also concentrate more on the individual talents that go into making a successful film such as directing, script-writing, acting and production values.

Our audiences are a discerning and diverse group, many of who will be involved in the creative arts themselves. They are more open to newness and originality so we encourage the submitting of films with a unique sensibility. We also have a large database of production companies and talent agencies based in London who will be receiving free invitations to the festival to scout for upcoming talent.

The films will be judged by a panel of filmmakers, performers and creative people who know and love films. We are looking for dynamic scripts, direction and performances. Films that have a good rhythm and no dead spots.

We are pursuing different possibilities within the broadcast industry that we hope will be, in the near future, of benefit to our festivals and the filmmakers that take part. There is a high demand for well curated and audience tested creative content and we plan on taking advantage of this need. Updates will be announced on our social media and newsletter.

We look forward to seeing your efforts.

    Hello I am a little confused. I was accepted by your festival according to FlimFreeway. I emailed you guys twice on the 22nd and 24th .before the event , to find out who it was going ahead due to Covid19 guidelines. I have checked my spam I have gotten no response from you . Can you clear this up for me? Thank you Myles

    We had such a great experience with London X4. It was awesome to be screened in the heart of London and the festival director was very welcoming and clearly knew all the films well. Also, the price of the screening was very affordable, so no problem if you want to invite friends! :)
