Short Films: London Calling

London Calling and London Calling Plus are back! Building on over a decade of experience and numerous industry and festival awards, our annual short film schemes will produce 20 films this year.

Both initiatives offer far more than production funding. The schemes also deliver a comprehensive programme of training and expert mentoring, helping to nurture and champion the capital’s most exciting new breakthrough talent.

Shorts produced through last year's scheme include the BAFTA nominated Three Brothers, actor Riz Ahmed's Sundance–selected directorial debut Daytimer and LSFF and Aspen Shortsfest winning Two Dosas.
