Preview: discover.film Awards 2017 (Film Festival)
Now in its fourth edition, the discover.film Awards and festival returns this weekend for another round of recognizing the best films of the year in various categories!
Taking place on both Saturday (30th Sep) and Sunday (1st Oct) at the Phoenix Cinema in North London, the discover.film festival has already been listed as one of the Top 100 Film Festivals in the world, despite having only been launched in 2016. It’s no small affair either – some of film’s greatest directors, critics and more have been in attendance, including patrons such as Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michael Palin and Mark Kermode.
discover.film is one of the most exciting new platforms for the entertainment industry; think of YouTube, but with a much more carefully curated selection of some of the absolute best short films from all across the world. Besides having a website and an app to stream these films, makers also get a chance to get their short films screened in cinemas by putting them in contact with interested distributors.
Whether you’re a longtime patron of the website or finding out about it for the first time, head on down to the festival this weekend to discover the best new short films the world has to offer, all in the comfort and grandeur of one of London’s oldest cinemas.
The discover.film Awards will take place on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October at the Phoenix Cinema (52 High Rd, East Finchley, London N2 9PJ, UK) Screenings will take place over four sessions over the weekend, and more information is available on their website, while tickets to the screenings and events can be purchased here
