The Walthamstow International Film Festival was launched in 2010. Since the first year we have enjoyed bringing films from around the world and films from around the corner to audiences in Walthamstow. Here are some of our highlights:
Over 1,000 short films shown at over 10 venues
We have welcomed over 5,000 people to watch over 5,000 minutes of film. That’s a week of film exhibition back to back!
We have partnered with the BFI, Film London, Stow Film Lounge, The Barbican, Stow Brothers and The Empire Cinema Group
Our judges and supporters include Director Barry Bliss, Stella Creasy MP, Actor Paul McGann, Artist Georgina Starr and Lady Oona King.
And we’ve shown our best short films at The BFI Southbank, The Empire Cinema, Vestry House Museum, The Big Penny Social and Ye Olde Rose and Crown Pub.
Our filmmakers have visited us from Paris, Brussels, MIlan, Bucharest, Seoul and Los Angeles.
We have been powered by over 100 volunteers.
We launch our next call for entries in January 2023 when we will announce our film festival dates and venue.
We hope that you will be a part of it.
