Encounters Film Festival

Encounters is the UK’s leading short film, animation and virtual reality festival. The festival discovers, supports and develops new talent in filmmaking, providing a platform for emerging and established filmmakers from around the world, and continues to be a unique meeting place for the industry.


Why we are on the programme?

Encounters is a charity that stands for fairness and equality. We’re very committed to inclusion behind the scenes and in front of our screens through our work and curation. However, there is always room to improve, so we joined the Creative Workforce for the Future Programme to go deeper on the inside work we need to do on ourselves and our organisation, to keep expanding our widening the lens commitment for ourselves, the talent, and all the companies and audiences we reach.
