If your film is included in the Official Selection, congratulations! If your film is not included, while we imagine that you may be disappointed, please do not be disheartened as there has been a very fine line between those selected and those not selected. 

Films screened during the festival week are published HERE. Not all films on the Official Selection will be screened during the festival week, though all films from Official Selection will be screened at WFF screenings throughout the year, details of which will be published on the box Office before 7th October.

Awards and Prizes
All films included in the Official Selection will be eligible for the WFF_2018 prizes. Films not screened during the festival week are no less likely to be award winners than those films screened during the festival week. The Winners and Special Mentions of each category will be announced at the Black-Tie Award Ceremony on Saturday 10th November.

Official Selection laurels for each category can be accessed HERE.

Please use the correct laurel. Standard laurel for caeogires Best Feature Film, Best British Short Film, Best Foreign Short Film, Best Short Documentary, Best Animated Short. Hampshire Prize laurel for  Hampshire Prize Category. New Directors laurel for filmmakers in Best New British Director and Best New Foreign Director.
