We’re thrilled to announce that NETWORK@LFF, our flagship talent development programme at the heart of the BFI London Film Festival, is back in full swing for 2021.

8 July 2021


Up to 12 trailblazing UK-based writers, directors and producers will join us for an intensive programme of masterclasses, screenings, events and industry insights. They’ll be given the exclusive opportunity to be immersed in the LFF Programme and interact with leading international filmmakers and industry executives, as well as receive accreditation for the duration of the festival.



This year, we’re looking for the boldest and brightest storytellers that the UK has to offer. Those who are ignited by an insatiable passion to make their voices known and push the boundaries of what audiences have come to expect from British Film. We want to hear from filmmakers who have a distinct quality to their work, a unique tone that sets them apart, a perspective we’ve yet to uncover.



We welcome creatives from all backgrounds and disciplines who are looking ahead to their debut feature or long-form commission. This is your chance to show us yourselves – Who do you want to be? What do you want to make?
