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.

The 2021 Ealing Film Festival will showcase a range of new Short films (15 minutes or less) that have been  produced from 2018 -2021. We’re looking for original stories, great directors and cinematography and  fabulous performances. There are a range of different genre categories which you can submit your work and there will be a variety of awards and prizes for the winners.
