Boundless Film Festival celebrates bold and original short films.

Based in London UK, we showcase a diverse programme of international short films and music videos to audiences across the globe during our quarterly online film festival.

We are dedicated to uplifting the boundless creativity and talent of new and emerging short filmmakers — and heartily encourage students and first-time filmmakers to submit — as well as established filmmakers.

Boundless Film Festival is open to short films and music videos of all genres, budgets, narratives and themes – from horror to comedy, experimental to documentaries, we welcome bold submissions of all kinds and filmmakers from all backgrounds.

We are a festival run by filmmakers. Our aim is to bring brilliant films to enthusiastic audiences and to help filmmakers reach new people and build their careers.

Boundless Film Festival takes place over one week, four times per year. Selected films are available to watch globally on our dedicated festival website for 7 days, during which time viewers are able to watch, discuss and vote for their favourite film or music video to win the coveted Audience Award.

We invest in marketing to promote the selected films to as wide an audience of engaged short film fans as possible. We encourage and aim to facilitate constructive conversation between filmmakers and audiences because, as filmmakers ourselves, we know that this is one of the most useful and important aspects of attending any film festival — whether it’s in a cinema or online.

Selected filmmakers will receive a bespoke festival laurel and a festival welcome pack filled with information and advice on how to make the most of your Boundless Film Festival experience. Additionally, award winners will receive special winner laurels and a personalised certificate.
