Official Selection
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 on 6th October 2019. 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 appear on the festival box office.

Awards and Prizes
All films included in the Official Selection will be eligible for the WFF_2019 awards. 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  on Saturday 15th November.

Official Selection laurels for each category can be accessed HERE on 5th October 2019.
Please use the correct laurel.
Standard laurel for categories 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.
