Essay Film Festival

NAME OF FESTIVAL: Essay Film Festival

SINCE: 2015

WHERE: London, UK


The Essay Film Festival is an annual celebration of this elusive, disruptive, and dynamically hybrid form. The aim of the festival is to expand the visibility of the essay film, not as a fixed genre but as a spectrum of possibilities, shifting between registers and playing with conventions. Bringing together the most striking, innovative examples of essayistic filmmaking – both contemporary and historical – from around the world, the festival complements the screenings with in-depth discussions with filmmakers and special guests.
