BFI Future Film FestivalShowcasing the work of young filmmakers, the BFI Future Film Festival returns for its tenth birthday this February and once again offers a packed programme of workshops, masterclasses, networking opportunities and screenings designed to inspire and develop film knowledge. Focusing on fiction, animation and documentary, young filmmakers aged between 16 and 25 are invited to submit their short films in each category for consideration at the Future Film Awards - the best will be shown to a panel of industry experts who will offer their advice and feedback. For anyone looking for a leg-up into the film business - whether you're advanced or a beginner, a writer or a producer - this is a must.
