London City Film Awards

International film festival in London.


London City Film Awards aims to gather emerging talent not only from the UK but also from around the world as well. We have started this international film event to allow up and coming producers, directors, writers, and everyone in between to showcase their productions. The art scene and film scene in London and around the world can be very daunting and seemingly impossible to get into and get involved with. 

London City Film Awards is the perfect new platform for budding filmmakers of all backgrounds. We are a film event made for artists by artists to exchange and celebrate the new work that is being made all around the world.
