Are you an ambitious filmmaker or screenwriter who wants to move forward in your career? Do you have a new project or talent that deserves recognition? Could you be a rising star of tomorrow?

The Emerging Talent Film Festival is a one day festival in London that every 3 months will showcase new and exciting work by some of the best up-and-coming filmmakers and screenwriters. The day includes a live screening of a selection of films, an award presentation, pitches from screenwriters, a speech from an industry professional, and a unique networking opportunity for those selected.

Who we are

The event is organised by the programmers from the New Renaissance Film Festival. Our friendly and welcoming film festival based in London is genuinely passionate about promoting the highest calibre of independent cinema around today. We have been described as “One of the UK’s top film festivals” (London METRO, 01.08.16), appeared in reputable publications such as Vogue, GQ and iD magazine, and are a registered IMDB film festival. Since September 2016, NRFF has been ranked in the top 100 best reviewed film festivals on FilmFreeway (#11, October 2021), out of 12,000+ worldwide. From NRFF’s inception in 2016, we have been introducing promising filmmakers and screenwriters to producers and industry professionals to help them with their careers. Since 2021, thanks to the generosity of its patron, we have given away more than £5,000 in cash prizes to emerging talent. Although cash prizes are not available for the quarterly festival, we hope to make this a reality in the near future.
