Welcome to
The South London Film Festival

The South London Film Festival was created because we are passionate about providing an opportunity for filmmakers worldwide to showcase their creativity with the multicultural community of South London.

We believe that every film we watch shapes the future of the industry and the world around it. Because of this, we work with partners to offer unique rewards and prizes that will support the careers of our filmmakers. Please check out the awards section for regularly updated prizes and rewards.

It has been a difficult time with so many changes to life, which has impacted the lives, businesses and hearts of many. Even during the hard times, we relied on creativity to get us through, inspire us and encourage others more than ever. This year, we have chosen to include a “COVID-19 inspired” short film festival category to showcase incredible talent and voice to a theme we can all relate to.

The South London Film Festival is also dedicated to supporting students, so we offer a “free to submit” category for students and schools/educational facilities.

For more info please visit our FAQ and for updates Follow us on social media.

We look forward to watching your films.

Submissions for 2021 are NOW CLOSED.  Our judges are now working tirelessly to select our Finalists and Winners.

We plan to go ahead at a live venue with limited audience on December 18th 2021 and screening LIVE online on Decemeber 19th 2021 – This may be subject to change depending on the development of the Covid-19 situation.

All prizes and rewards for 2020 winners are currently being processed and may take longer than usual to distribute due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis/restrictions. Thank you for bearing with us and our partners!

Our YouTube Channel is NOW LIVE! Please support us by subscribing and sharing with friends/family! We have so much exciting content to share.

As you may have noticed, we now have a ‘News’ tab on our website. This will be used to publish news, reviews, interviews and other interesting articles which we hope you will enjoy. We will be covering a range of artistic entertainment sectors, from films, TV and Games etc. We want to provide a platform for budding writers and reviewers to publish their work. Whether you want to write a movie review, or an article about a recent TV series, please get in touch and we will try to facilitate where we can. Guidance and support will be provided.
