The UK Film Festival aims to champion great films but in particular is seeking work from those filmmakers who might not yet have had the chance for a prestigious public screening of their work.Screening in the heart of London, teh UKF celebrates the cultural diversity of films made in the UK and welcomes films from all over the World.Within 5 years UKFF has established a tradition of promoting films that later have gone onto to be Oscar nominees and winners. One previous winner, Mat Kirkby’s Phone Call, went on to win the Oscar for best live-action short. In addition, the festival’s writing competition, in which the best script is made into a film, has also produced winners at the Berlin film festival two years in a row.
The full programme is here and includes several short film and music video strands, as well as Stanley, A Man Of Variety starring Timothy Spall as 16 different characters, which closes the festival.
