Future Film Focus

Supporting emerging talent to entry level employment, training, and work experience roles within the creative industries with key cultural partners.

Future Film Focus is a strand of E17 Films CIC. Our objectives are to promote emerging talent from our borough through our annual film festival and boost employment in the creative industries through film education and community engagement.

We launched our first Future Film Focus event in 2018 during Waltham Forest’s Borough of Culture and with funding from LBWF.  The 2019 quickly followed at Leytonstone School as part of the first Leytonstone Loves Film event, curated by the Barbican.  The event aims to run annually with a commitment to promoting careers in the creative industries.

In June, it was announced that November’s edition of the event; titled ‘Future Film Focus: Digital Skills’ was geared to take place at Waltham Forest College, our official partner, with funding from Foundation For Future London. The event is set to focus on underrepresented communities who identify as neurodiverse or dyslexic.

Further details are to be announced.
