Each week day morning you can attend seminars at The Hospital Club, lunch times we have guest shorts screening in the Rushes Delegate Tent alongside discussions at De Lane Lea. Week day afternoons there will be panels at the Apple Store on Regent Street discussing the ‘Future of’ commercial and independent filmmaking sectors. Each evening we have the official screenings a the ICA where the audience also have the opportunity to join the festival judges in voting for their favourite film. The weekend sees the welcome return of our New Filmmakers Market at BAFTA on Sunday 15 July.

We mention this every year but please do buy tickets early to avoid disappointment. We often sell out of events so if you can no longer make an event please do contact us, through Eventbrite or the box office at ICA or BAFTA, as we will likely have people on waiting lists.
