ABOUT THE EARL’S COURT FILM FESTIVAL

Now in its sixth year, ECFF has become an annual fixture on the Earl’s Court cultural calendar. In previous festivals, we have shown shorts to full capacity audiences at all venues, including the Gala and Awards evening, which has consistently attracted an audience of over 400 people.

In 2020, the festival continues to generate an amazing reaction with local and international audiences, but this ECFF audience arrangements have changed. In line with Covid-19 government guidelines, we hope to welcome small local audiences to select venues. Excitingly, we also look forward to connecting with a short film-lovers globally via our new virtual festival screenings.

Earl’s Court is an incredibly cinematic district with fantastic venues for screening films, and at this year’s Earl’s Court Film Festival in October 2020, an annual celebration of the short film genre, we will launch the outstanding work of emerging film makers to large audiences.

In the beginning we wanted to make films, so we approached emerging films makers from London Film School to tell their stories on our streets and so it all began….

Earl’s Court Film Festival (ECFF) continues to support film makers with grants, location and production office support, as well as accepting short film entries for screening at ECFF in Earl’s Court’s wonderful cinematic venues.

Some of our Earl’s Court short films have been selected or entered for screening at other film festivals such as Tribeca, Sundance and BAFTA qualifying festivals.

Feature Film – Great News

In 2021, Film Earl’s Court will be an Associate Producer of a feature film which will include Earl’s Court locations.

Community Outreach

In line with Covid 19 government guidelines – ECFF 2020 will have a reduced schedule of Community Outreach events. Pending lifting of relevant restrictions, we plan to arrange screenings with local care homes, NHS trusts, youth and community centres in early 2021.
