Sales Representation and Festival Exposure Opportunities: Film London's 'Breakthrough' Open for Applications

Posted: 27th February 2015

Film London has opened applications for their Breakthrough strand at this year’s London Screenings.

The only export market dedicated to UK film, London Screenings (formerly known as LUFF) returns to the capital 22-25 June 2015. Now in its 12th year, the four-day export event will again provide a platform to celebrate and promote British films to the international market. London Screenings regularly attracts over 120 buyers from all world territories who come to see around 50 new British titles.

While the main event is invite-only, filmmakers who are seeking sales representation or festival exposure for their feature film can submit it to the Breakthrough strand for the opportunity to have it seen by a host of buyers, international sales companies and film festival directors.  

Of 2014's eight Breakthrough titles, five have gone on to attract sales representation. These include Narcopolis (Altitude), Secret Sharer (Moviehouse) and The Hoarder (Genesis).

To qualify for Breakthrough film must be:

  • Full feature length and of theatrical nature and quality
  • Ready for delivery by June 2015
  • Predominantly British

As London Screenings is a showcase for new films, priority will be given to those titles not seen at other festivals/markets

Applications close Wednesday 25 March 2015.

Film London presents London Screenings in association with the BFI and supported by Mayor of London, Film Export UK and UK Trade & Investment.
