Every year the Earls Court Film Festival commissions a number of homegrown short films. Last year’s films have gone on from Earl’s Court to conquer the world.

At just 8 years old Jonah Paull won Best Performance in a Short Film at the Young Artist Academy Awards, Hollywood’s longest running awards for young talent, also known as ‘Kiddie Oscars’. Paull won the award for his role in the ECFF Short, Last Day of Summer. Previous winners of the award include Leonardo DiCaprio, Natalie Portman, Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder and many more.

Courted by writer & director Andres Heger- Bratterud, was ECFF’s first longer short filmed in Earl’s Court in 2017. The film follows Stuart, a 72-year old Jehovah’s Witness with a secret he’s been hiding since childhood.

“Courted has been nominated for Best British Short at the Iris Prize, the largest LGBTQ film festival in the world,” said Caroline Tod-Richardson, Co-Producer. “The film is also a BAFTA qualifying film festival, which we are delighted about.”

Sean Duffy, co-director of the festival says “It’s is all about Earl’s Court and community as we continue to bring colour and vibrancy into our neighbourhood through drama and film.”
