A SHORT HISTORY

The Earls Court Film Festival was founded in 2014 when Sean Duffy, Caroline Tod Richardson and Toby Brown, with the Earls Court Community Trust, decided they wanted to make short films in Earl’s Court where Earl’s Court was the principal filming location. Over the four years, they have co-produced 12 short films, many of which have gone on to feature at other Film Festivals and even won awards, including BFI London Film Festival and Sundance.

In 2016 they decided to expand the festival to include short film submissions. Now receiving over 100 submissions, the Festival not only believes in screening amazing films, but building strong relationships with emerging film- makers.
