LWFF 2022 Award Winners

We're excited to present the award-winning films for Little Wing Film Festival 2022!


After a brilliant week of screenings, events, and celebrations, we're very excited to announce this year's award winning films who our jury have chosen from a pool of incredible nominations. We want to take a moment to say congratulations to all the nominated films, filmmakers, cast and crew in what has been an incredibly competitive year for our awards and recognise 2022 as a challenge year of recovery for the industry. What you've persisted in creating is astonishing and every one of your team members should be incredibly proud of what you've produced. Thanks to our prize sponsors we have over 7000 pounds worth of prizes to award as our of facilitating future projects and fostering career growth in a meaningful way. Thank you to our partners at Film4, Final Draft, RODE, MET Film School, Assemble TV, Shiny, Female Film Club, and Toonboom Animation. 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.
