Lift-Off Film Festivals

Screen your film in front of some of the best audiences in the world. We are currently looking for content that challenges, informs, and shows a fresh perspective to storytelling. If your project is engaging and your talent shines within it we want your work screening with us.

We programme and host multiple festivals throughout the year, each consisting of both live and online screenings. We aim to screen as many films as possible, particularly Network Member's films, in order to give filmmakers the best chance to launch their career. Please see below the dates and programmes of each Lift-Off Film Festival this Season.
