The show must go on!

Due to the coronavirus, this seasons event will be screened on an online platform and when the virus issue has gone I will also be screening the selected films at a live event too.

Underneath the Floorboards is a visual arts, experimental film night held in London buzzing artistic area of Hackney where everything that is non-linear and not of a traditional narrative form will be considered. We show the best of experimental film, video art and experimental documentary and animation.

No bias, no prejudice if you didn't study in the most prestigious art schools, we don't care, we just want to see work that is of an artistic nature, which creates its own language.

Watch great films in the company of other artists and filmmakers in the heart of London's creative hub.

Films must be short films no more than 40 minutes max, and must be experimental in nature, theme and/or form.

    An outstanding festival for experimental films in a great venue. Host and festival director Pablo is as friendly and welcoming as they come. Will definitely be submitting future work to this well run festival. Highly recommended.
