BFI Future Film Festival announces 2021 Programme

The BFI Future Film Festival is the UK’s largest festival for young, emerging filmmakers.

From over 1000 submissions from 47 countries, with the aid of 12 BFI Film Academy Young Programmers, they’ve selected 45 short films for this year’s programme. These applicants represent the innovation, ambition, heart, and diversity of young filmmaking talent across the globe.

The programme is now live and available to explore on the BFI website, and BFI would love to get as many young people as possible registering for events in advance.

In the past year, young people have faced disruption, uncertainty, and countless challenges – to their physical and mental health, education, and relationships. The festival is a celebration of their resilience and creativity, and proof that - now more than ever - their talent and voices cannot be ignored.
