The UK Film Festival aims to champion great films but in particular is seeking work from those filmmakers who might not yet have had the chance for a prestigious public screening of their work. (Seen above director Brady Hood after winning the Edgeware Award for Best British Short Film; Timothy Spall winner of the The Edgeware Special Achievement Award and Yanqi Chen winner of the Award for Best Student Film.)
Screening in the heart of London, we celebrate the cultural diversity of films made in the UK and welcome films from all over the World.
As a member of Universal Films and Festivals Organisation we ensure a fair selection and judging process.
