LWFF 2022 Award Nominations

We are delighted to reveal the LWFF 2022 award nominees!

Congratulations to all the nominated films, filmmakers, cast and crew!

In a challenging year of recovery, you have continued to create and champion your work, and it's been such a privilege to help share these stories with the world.

There are some incredible prizes to be won by our filmmakers this year, everything from software and equipment to film school bursaries, so be sure to join us for Closing Night on October 9th at Everyman Kings Cross for the awards night and an after party with music, drinks, and celebration!

We believe we have a responsibility to create opportunities for emerging filmmakers that are more sustainable and tangible than exposure and experience. Just like our prizes, we want to make sure our trophies follow the same ethos. Rather than something that sits on your shelf and collects dust - take a look at the Little Wing trophies for 2022. Chopping boards! Cook with them, use them however you like, and when they've made a thousand meals, recycle them! We want what remains not to be a trophy, but the hope that our prizes and opportunity pathways helped get you in a better position to keep creating your next project.

These will be selected from the entire pool of eligible films.
