Short Films: London Calling
Our new shorts scheme for the London region in partnership with BFI Network is available now and on a rolling basis: https://network.bfi.org.uk/film-hub-london
Shorts produced through Film London’s previous partnership with the BFI, London Calling, include the Berlin Crystal Bear-winning Balcony, BAFTA-nominated Three Brothers, Riz Ahmed's directorial debut Daytimer, and Sundance, Tribeca and Berlin-selected White Riot: London. You can see the May 2018 slate here.
London Calling writers, directors and producers have gone on to make longer and more ambitious works, developing their careers within the moving image industries. Previous London Calling shorts have been selected and won awards at some of the biggest festivals around the world, and many of our London Calling directors have since moved on to make features. Follow what previous awardees are up to with #LDNCalling on Twitter.
London Calling is proud to be a partner of the BFI.NETWORK, with funding from the BFI and Creative Skillset, and run with support of the London Boroughs of Lambeth, Redbridge, Southwark and Waltham Forest. It is supported by Panalux and Island Studios, and Performance Insurance.
Proud to be a partner of:
“I'm indebted to this scheme. After London Calling we were nominated for a BIFA, won a Crystal Bear in Berlin, and I'm getting development money for my first feature.”
