UK Film Festival – Call For Entries
|UK FILM FESTIVAL
London – United Kingdom
November 21 to 25, 2017
|In the Spotlight is the 7th Annual UK Film Festival (UKFF). Screening in the heart of London at the prestigious Warner Bros Theater and offering the largest cash prize in the UK (for short film) UKFF welcomes films of all types from around the world. Championing great films, the Festival particularly seeks work from those filmmakers who might not yet have had a prestigious public screening. Notable attendees have included Judi Dench, Dustin Hoffman, James Corden, Bill Nighy, and Timothy Spall.
The newly launched script competition has also made a big impact – four scripts have been optioned and two have been produced. The UKFF is BIFA qualifying with their Official Selection in good company – as previous highlights include the film festival premiere of Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot. Some of the UKFF winning feature films have gone on to be Oscar winners such as Ida from Poland, The Broken Circle Breakdown from Belgium, and Mat Kirkby’s short film The Phone Call with Jim Broadbent and Sally Hawkins. The festival recently premiered Shok , directed by Jamie Donoughue, which then went on to earn an Oscar nomination in 2016. Other highlights have included the 2016 Oscar winner for short film, The Stutterer as well as the 2015 Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner Boogaloo and Graham, and the 2016 BAFTA winner Operator.
