Short Films: London Calling
Our annual short film scheme, London Calling, is built on over a decade of experience.
We help to nurture and champion the capital’s most exciting breakthrough filmmaking talent with a comprehensive package of production funding, training and expert mentoring.
London Calling will produce 20 new short films this year.
The main London Calling scheme supports new and emerging filmmaking teams, with 15 short films awarded up to £4,000.
The London Calling Plus strand supports BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) writers and directors with previous experience, with five short films awarded up to £15,000.
Our alumni have received numerous industry and festival nominations and awards for their London Calling films.
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, Waltham Forest and Wandsworth. It is supported by Panalux and Island Studios, and Performance Insurance.
“It was truly amazing to watch everyone's ideas being realised.”
