2021 Films have now been selected

Filmmakers have been notified and in the next few days all the selections will be available for viewing online. Last-minute entries from all over the world pushed the total number of submissions up to 268. That’s a significant increase on last year. But it’s the quality of the entries that is really impressive. It was not an easy job for judges to narrow down the categories.

Here are the key stats…
The largest number of entries came from the UK, with a total of 119 (44 per cent) followed by the United States with 57 (21 per cent).
Overall, we had submissions from 35 countries on six continents, from Iceland to Peru, Iraq to Trinidad. Narrative / Drama was the most popular category with 50 films, but we had another 43 in the Lockdown category, showing how the pandemic is still affecting our lives.
A heartfelt thank you everyone, wherever you are in the world, for your support. It’s your films that make our festival.

We’d also like to welcome our newest award sponsor The Moon and Maybe here in Ealing on St Mary’s Road. When we are not working on the 2021 festival this is our preferred hangout for coffee, cake and some cheeky sips of wine in the late afternoon. Seriously cool place. See more on our sponsors page.

Spacehive Funding was successful!


THANK YOU so much to everyone who supported us in our SpaceHive Fundraising quest.
We reached our goal thanks to you!
We will soon be putting this equipment to good use in and all around Ealing. The next step is purchasing and planning where we will be screening our films. Please contact us if you would like us in your community.

Ealing Film Festival wants to be an integral part of our vibrant community.
This equipment will allow us to take the magic of film and filmmaking out into the community. We believe people are desperate to move beyond the restrictions of the past year and a half. We intend to host screenings of our winning films across the borough as soon as possible.
