The London Screenings and The Breakthrough Strand

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

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 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.

Subject to COVID-19 protocols, London Screenings will take place as an in-person edition at Picturehouse Central 20-23 June 2022.

Breakthrough applications are now closed for 2022.

London Screenings is funded and supported by the BFI, Mayor of London, Film Export UK and Department for International Trade.
