The London Screenings and The Breakthrough Strand

The London Screenings is the only export market dedicated to UK film.

Now in its 20th year, the annual export event provides a platform to celebrate and promote British films to the international market.

Buyers from all over the world come to see an exciting selection of new British films, meet UK sales companies, and negotiate international distribution deals. It also provides a market for over 60 British sales companies.

The Breakthrough Strand for newly completed feature films/documentaries.

The Breakthrough strand of the London Screenings is a showcase for completed feature films and feature documentaries from upcoming British filmmakers seeking sales representation and international film festival exposure.

UK sales companies view titles in this strand for acquisitions for international sales, whilst UK and international film festivals watch for possible inclusion in their film festival.

The London Screenings will take place at Picturehouse Central from 24 to 26 June 2024. Breakthrough applications for 2024 are now closed. For any queries, please contact:
