Celebrating our 5th Earl’s Court Film Festival in 2019

20 October to 1 November, 2019

Earl’s Court is a diverse, vibrant multi-cultural community, situated in the heart of West-London with a long and rich history of film, music and the arts.

Home to some truly extraordinary film-makers, musicians, artists, writers and actors in the past, including Alfred Hitchcock, Freddie Mercury, Dusty Springfield, Agatha Christie, Beatrix Potter, Sid Barrett, Willie Rushton and, for a time, Bob Dylan.

For many years, film-makers have been drawn to Earl’s Court and the surrounding areas as it is incredibly cinematic and colourful district for them to tell their stories.

As well as screening short films selected from submissions across the world, Film Earls Court co-produce short films in which Earl’s Court is the principal filming location. In the last five years we have co-produced fifteen short films.  We currently have four in production . Many Earl’s Court Shorts have been screened at national and international Bafta and Oscar qualifying festivals which include Iris awards, Young Artists Academy Los Angeles & BFi and London Short film festival.

Discussions are currently underway to co- produce a low budget feature film in which Earl’s Court is the principal filming location. We are happy to receive your ideas for a feature earlsfeature@gmail.com
