UK International Veterans’ Film Festival

Important Notice

With a lower volume of entries this year as opposed to our first year we have decided that due the niche nature of the film festival we would change the way in which we operate. To that end we are now going to run the festival every 2 years. The date of the next Festival therefore will be 16th- 18th November 2018.

Those films that have already entered will still be eligible for next years’ festival at no extra cost.

We are sorry about the change, however in order to do justice to the subject matter and the great films we feel this is the best for all concerned.

Thank you for understanding.

Veteran Film Festival Team

The annual UK International Veterans’ Film Festival is dedicated to raising awareness about our serving and ex serving Armed Forces community, their families, the unique set of difficulties they face and the impact war has on our society.

Arguably, Film is still the most powerful medium to create stories and put ideas out into the world. Now, more than ever before, it is possible for creativity to emerge and be shared through digital media.

Our aim is to bring to life veterans’ stories whilst showcasing talent through compelling, moving, sometimes disturbing and funny stories. We want to facilitate a greater opportunity to understand the lives of our veterans and their families, their struggles and successes.

We want to share their stories that are harrowing, disturbing or inspiring; stories that show us a side of the human condition that so many of us will never see or experience – all through the medium of film.

Whilst inviting our community to think about how film provokes them and how relevant a film’s message is to them.

UK International Veterans Film Festival proudly accepts entries via, the world's best online submissions platform. FilmFreeway offers free HD online screeners, Vimeo and YouTube integration, and more.
