Little Wing Film Festival returns to London for 2019

18 September 2019

Established three years ago, the Little Wing Film Festival is back from the 20th-22nd of September 2019 at Mirth, Marvel & Maud in London. Founded as a movement focused on fairly compensating young filmmakers for their efforts, the event now finds itself offering film graduates, students and first-time videographers exposure and experience.

"We want to create events and opportunities that shift us towards a future in film that we'd like to see for ourselves and encourage around us - a future that is inclusive, where opportunities aren't just reserved for those who can afford to work unpaid, and where talent isn't disadvantaged because it's new."

Run for young people, by young people - Little Wing Film Festival have carefully selected several shorts, features, animations and documentaries all with the chance of winning some of the prizes on offer. Over the past two years the team behind Little Wing has given away £8,000 worth of money and prizes to fledgling directors, with this years’ awards including partnership programmes and mentorship within the BBC.

Equalising opportunities, Little Wing Film Festival allows film goers to join workshops, Q&As and panels with the likes of BAFTA-winning actor Jamie Robson, award-winning writer and director Peter Marsden and the MET Film School. This sort of progressive attitude demonstrated by the festival organisers could be the key to giving vital experience to young filmmakers.

"We want the festival itself to be a rewarding experience, not only for filmmakers who have submitted but for those who are attending as well. If you're in London and attending, the weekend itself will consist of networking opportunities and a workshop headed by industry leaders in film-making and festival consultancy"
