The only export market dedicated to UK film, London Screenings (formerly known as LUFF) returns to the capital 22-25 June 2015.
Now in its 12th year, the four-day export event will again provide a platform to celebrate and promote British films to the international market. London Screenings regularly attracts over 120 buyers from all world territories who come to see around 50 new British titles.
Breakthrough for emerging filmmakers
Producers with a feature film seeking sales representation and film festival exposure can have it seen by buyers, international sales companies and film festival directors with Breakthrough at London Screenings.
Applications for Breakthrough open a few months in advance of the event. Filmmakers across the UK are encouraged to apply for this opportunity to raise their film's profile amongst an international set.
Of 2014's eight Breakthrough titles, five have gone on to attract sales representation. These include Narcopolis (Altitude), Secret Sharer (Moviehouse) and The Hoarder (Genesis).

Last week saw big developments with our ambitious Microwave International: Shakespeare India project, as the teams met for an intense week of training and development at Microschool. We spoke to some of our filmmakers and mentors to find out what Microschool meant for them, their teams and their projects.
