HOW IT WORKS
We're dipping our toes back into in-person screenings this year, but the full programme is still available online too, so those unable to make the live events can still join us.
Our in-person Opening Night will kick off on Tuesday 21st September at
Everyman Chelsea, with goodie bags, live music and celebrations. Our mid-week screenings are all online, with films released at 10am every day through the week. Finally, we'll come to a close on the 26th with a ticket fundraiser for the Hen and Chickens Islington, one of the most exciting of London's increasingly rare independent theatres. We can't wait for you to join us, either in person or from home!
Our community of independent filmmakers has been hit hard by the pandemic, so we're bringing back our subsidised ticket scheme to make Little Wing open to everyone. If you're able to, please consider purchasing a Supporter Ticket or making a donation to help make our festival accessible and support grassroots film. If you can't, that's okay - pick up a free solidarity ticket and enjoy, no questions asked.
For tickets to online screenings or our Closing Night at the Hen and Chicken head to our
tickets page - online screening links are released at 10am each day, and you'll have 3 days from then to watch them. For tickets to our Opening Night head to
Everyman Chelsea, who we're working with to get audiences back into cinemas.
Each day we'll send ticket holders a unique link to that day's films, which you can watch in your own time.
If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to
us, or drop us a line on
We’re staying connected even while we’re apart. You can find the filmmakers profiles under their film listing, and as join us for informal Q&As on
. We’ll send out daily newsletters with the following day’s list of events as well as Q&A schedules – just sign up at the bottom of this page if you aren’t on our mailing list.
We'll be running our events programme through the week on Zoom, so keep your eye on our Twitter and Instagram for updates!

Ian Bignell (Festival Strategist) and Frankie Stewart (Submissions Coordinator) from Festival Formula will talk you through why it matters what materials you’re using to head on to the festival circuit, and why what a festival requests is important.

Hosted by Little Wing Volunteers

This is an event geared specifically towards Little Wing filmmakers, from festivals past and present. If you don't fall under this umbrella but would still like to attend, register and let us know a little bit about yourself. Spaces limited. Location will be revealed on the day, close to Camden Town and Camden Road stations.
