Partnering with Film London, Vue, and BFI, Your Cinema is an initiative that provides a mainstream outlet for films reflecting the lives and cultures of young people particularly from BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds in the UK.

This consists of a series of low-cost screenings featuring industry Q+As with successful personalities such as Noel Clarke, Ashley Walters and Femi Oguns MBE, providing key insight on pathways into the industry.

Our screenings are a great way to engage young audiences as they broaden their horizons through critically-acclaimed and compelling films that reflect their lives while avoiding stereotypes.

Structure of our screenings:
- 4-6 Short Films screened
- Live Q+A panel with an industry guest

If you're ready to screen your work to some of the most influential audiences and industry experts in the UK then send in your film to us before the deadline dates.

Submission Format:

Films entered for selection must be submitted via a private or unlisted viewing link to along with the details of the company (or individual) who own the rights to the film to be screened.

Submission for films is FREE

Please make sure that your film meets our requirements.

Films will be selected by our review panel and no film may be withdrawn from the festival programme after its selection.
