A highly regarded and anticipated event in the UK’s film calendar, London Film Week has grown greatly in visibility and significance in recent years because of its bold concept: a hybrid film festival only showing a limited amount of films. All the films are UK Premieres or Preview screenings. The Festival also presents industry meetings, workshops, concerts, and a focus/retrospective on a filmmaker or country. More information right here.

First-time and established filmmakers are being selected and every film genre is considered. The festival only shows bold and iconic content, something to remember.

LFW aims to become one of Europe’s top audience-focused film festivals, continuing to build a reputation for an international programme of the world’s best films (both in-person and online) alongside a strong industry offer.

The 6th edition of LFW will take place from Monday 4 to Sunday 10 December 2023 both in the heart of London and online. The Gala screenings will take place in the heart of London and industry events at selected venues across the city.
