The BFI has released the film programme for this year’s Future Film Festival, which will take place from 17th-20th February. 

Showcasing the work of young, emerging filmmakers, the BFI’s Future Film Festival is the largest of its’ kind in the UK. Now, the institute has released the film programme for the festival, which features 50 short films by filmmakers from across the world aged 16-25.

The featured short films were chosen out of hundreds of submissions by the Future Film Festival team and the BFI Film Academy Young Programmers. BFI may stand for The British Film Institute, but the submissions for this festival came from over 40 countries. It will showcase the best young talent in the world, not just the UK.

Future Film Festival aims to give these aspiring young filmmakers the opportunity to learn from industry experts, as well as connect with peers and find potential collaborators to further their careers.

Much like the Berlin Film Festival, the BFI has opted for a hybrid model this year. The shorts will play both at the festival venue – BFI Southbank – and online on BFI Player. Some of the online events will be free in order to open them up a diverse range of worldwide attendees.

The film programme can be accessed from the Future Film Festival website, and the BFI has released a trailer to promote the festival and its chosen short films.

It’s also worth keeping an eye out for their full programme, which will be released in the coming weeks. This will include panels of industry experts, interviews, discussions, and workshops.

BFI Future Film Festival 2022 takes place from 17th-20th February.
