BFI Future Film

We host Future Film events every month for 15-25 year olds who love film.


Our exciting events focus on a different area of film or the industry and help young filmmakers learn more about their craft.

The annual BFI Future Film Festival takes place over a weekend in February every year, with a packed line up of workshops, masterclasses, networking opportunities, screenings and Q&As at BFI Southbank.
