Story Image Fest is a platform for the new voices of visual storytelling with an annual screening event taking place in picturesque London.

Our Dramatic Competition champions traditional cinematic narratives, Documentary Programme seeks true stories that can touch and teach, while Visual Strand focuses on the expression of the moving image, including animation, music, advertising, experimental and fashion films.

We look for emerging talent and innovative stories told through images.
Jury is led by Pavel Prokopic, PhD, MA Film Aesthetics, Oxford University.

    On behalf of the entire film team, I would like to thank the Story Image Film Festival and its audience! I would especially like to thank the jury who honoured me with this very beautiful award! I am very touched and very happy! I really regret not being able to go to London, to this city that I love! I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you if there is a future trip! Thank you again! Long live the festival!
