This year the Festival ran from 26th October – 9th November. During that time there were numerous screenings, community film events and celebrations, and we loved every moment.
Festival short films told stories of love, memory, upheaval, facing challenges, injustice, humour and hope. To those of you that attended , we hope you have enjoyed your time at the Earl’s Court Film Festival 2018. Our goal was to make you laugh, cry, and inspire you. If you leave with just one new thought, that thought may change your life.
23 films made it to the Festival, and these were screened in various Earl’s Court venues over the two weeks of the festival. The selection covers a wide range of genres including comedy, thriller, surreality, drama and documentary. And there were a number of famous faces featuring including Game of Thrones’ Gemma Whelan and Sir Lenny Henry. There were also some beautiful animation films exploring family and friendship.
