2020 Award Winners


At the end of what has been a very exciting week, we're taking our hats off to the incredible filmmakers who made this all possible by telling their stories which we're lucky enough to share. It has been an absolute privilege to screen your films on our platform and introduce them to new audiences. Each one of you has an incredibly important voice and perspective and however we can champion you and your story in the future, you know where to find us.


We wouldn't be able to give something back to our filmmakers if it wasn't for the support of partners who have continued to champion our work and our filmmakers' work during such challenging times.


Each of the filmmakers will be receiving a Dropbox PLUS license, Final Draft 11 Screenwriting software, advice sessions with BBC Films, a 2020 pass to Raindance Film Festival, free submission to Barnes Film Festival 2020, and one filmmaker will take home a weekend short-course from MET Film School in London. A big thank you to the BFI, supported by the National Lottery Fund, for their support throughout a very challenging year in film.


To our friends in business, thank you for your persisting support of emerging filmmakers and fostering growth for the industry's future storytellers.
