Join the Lift-Off Global Network at our home in the world-famous Pinewood Studios for a filmmaking showcase that puts you in the centre of everything.

The Showcases are quarterly events aimed at screening & workshopping indie content from unsung talents and introducing producers to exciting new projects.

The Showcase will consist of an out-of-competition screening in the world-famous Pinewood Studios - home of blockbuster franchises such as James Bond and Star Wars.

The screening is followed by a focus group & feedback centred around the next stages of development. Feedback is crucial for any creative looking to succeed; this is an invaluable opportunity that will benefit any filmmaker.

You'll find free content on our YouTube Channel, such as live workshops, interviews with filmmakers, news updates, and more. Subscribe!

    The people at Lift-off were excellent especially on the day Ben was very welcoming. I loved meeting the other filmmakers and the feedback received on my movie Trigger will help me in the future. Everyone’s work that was showcased was excellent and inspiring.

    It's been a pleasure to screen Appetite at a number of our events and nominate it for a Season Award for Best First-Time FilmπŸ†! Always went down well with audiences and bought a giggle to many :D

  • The Festival notified of a selection for the Filmmaker Showcase and then later revealed that due to covid-19. The Festival was moved online. Following this, the showcase Festival decided to merge all the festivals into one online rented package where the public voted for the best films. This wasn't the theme of Festival I'd submitted to.

    Hi Cameron,

    We're genuinely sorry to hear your disappointment - we don't want to give any of our filmmakers a bad experience. We always take feedback very seriously, especially if it gives us an opportunity to improve.

    In the face of Covid, we've had very little time to migrate to an online model. We aren't web developers, but we wanted to screen as many of the deserving films as possible so we attempted to make a system that we hoped worked best. This has been designed in the heart of lockdown, while everyone was working at home, with a lot of plates to juggle.

    That being said, we do feel the festival presented a great opportunity for people to have their work watched by many people all over the world with stats that our live events cannot reach! So we do feel there were some positives we were able to draw from the situation.

    We will always strive to improve the systems we use (whether that's our traditional screenings or Covid-compatible models). We will try to be better next time. And wish you all the very best in your filmmaking journey, please stay in touch Cameron, we would love to see what you do next! Lift-off Global Network.

  • Awesome all around! Thank you!
