Filmmakers and sales agents, are you registered to receive updates on the British Council's selector screenings service? We've got selectors from Toronto, Venice, San Sebastian, Venice and Busan coming to London in the coming weeks!

One of the key year-round programmes of the British Council Film department is our selector screenings for film festivals.

We invite filmmakers and sales companies to screen their British feature films for festival programmers at our private screenings in London throughout the year. This is an opportunity to get your film seen on the big screen with the full attention of top programmers as they make their festival selections.

We have some top festivals coming to scout British films in the coming few weeks.

They include:

  • Toronto (Piers Handling, Cameron Bailey, Kerri Craddock) June 15-19
  • Busan (Dosin Pak) June 22-23
  • Venice (Alberto Barbera) late June
  • San Sebastian and Zurich (Jose Luis Rebordinos for San Sebastian, Karl Spoerri for Zurich) July 1-3

The other festivals we plan to screen for in 2015-2016 will include:

  • SXSW
  • Rome
  • Sundance
  • Berlinale
  • Rotterdam
  • Sofia
  • Tribeca
  • Cannes
  • Karlovy Vary
  • Locarno

If you are a producer or sales agent who wants to sign up for our email alerts about screening your film to the festival selectors, please send your name and email address to
