British Film Festival 2020
Important COVID-19 update

2020 schedule update due to Coronavirus pandemic

Important COVID-19 Update

Due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, we are making a few changes in British Film Festival’s schedule for this year.

Film Submission Deadline Extension
As you may know, British Film Festival usually takes place in March. Despite the pandemic, we will not be cancelling the festival. Instead, we will be postponing the festival, which this year will take place entirely online.

We understand the unprecedented challenges filmmakers face to complete their work. Therefore, the new film submission deadline for the competition is 31 August 2020.

Online Revision and Judgement
In September 2020, the festival jury will consider and review all the film entries that are submitted successfully before 31 August 2020 deadline.
British Film Festival jury will announce the list of winners on the “2020 Winners” page of the festival’s website.

Award Presentation
  • Winners: British Film Festival will post the winners’ Trophies to their addresses via a selected international courier.
  • Nominees: All shortlisted and nominees will receive their Official Selection certificates in the post.
  • Participants: We celebrate creativity and creation. All 2020 submissions will receive Authenticated Participant badge.

Since British Film Festival 2020 will be taking online the following changes are applied to 2020 events schedule:
  • Red Carpet and After Party Gala events are not taking place in 2020 exceptionally
  • Industry Networking and Film Market are solely online for 2020
  • Instead Questions & Answers, this year Filmmakers and Industry leaders will be sending exclusive videos for Speakers Session event. We will publish these exclusive sessions on the festival’s website.

IBFF withdraws all tickets for all 2020 events. Since 2020 festival is taking place online, International British Film Festival does not sell tickets for 2020 events. A full refund issued for those who already purchased their tickets.

International British Film Festival is standing on your side in the most challenging time for our creative community.
