The Ealing Film Festival has been established to encourage a diverse cultural offering from within the borough, London, UK and far beyond.

We have our winners!

Pass the envelope please.

Hello audience and fimmakers! The judges have made their decisions for each category and have chosen their overall best film. The lovely Mel Giedroyc has very graciously agreed to take on both the presenter and special guest roles that would be ‘normal’ at an awards show and you can watch that below.

Congratulations to all the winners, the selected entries and to everyone who entered into our first year of the Ealing Film Festival. We have found the films inspiring, funny, scary, dramatic, startling, loving, thoughtful and above all brilliantly creative!
In this time of the continuing pandemic around us we want to thank you for your support of our festival and we hope we have added a little in return. 


All the best,
Peter, Alan and Annemarie

People’s Choice voting has now stopped. We will announce the winner on January 1, 2021 at 6pm GMT

Ealing has long been a byword for memorable filmmaking. The studios have a proud place in the history of British cinema and the town is now home to top class film schools, providing a new generation of talent. However, like many other creative industries, this year has been one of the most difficult on record and a most worrying time for independents.

In response Ealing Film Festival has teamed with the established Classic Cinema Club-Ealing to offer a platform showcasing a wealth of diverse creativity; scriptwriters, directors, editors, actors and many others involved in the process. We applaud all Filmmakers who have battled on despite the current situation.

Initially the Festival will be held online, but the intention is for Ealing to host a Real Life Festival as soon as is possible.
