London Breeze (formerly Barnes Film Festival) was established in 2016 to showcase emerging filmmakers from across the UK, together with award- winning films from around the world, and that remains true today.

We are incredibly proud to hold BIFA (British Independent Film Association) qualifying status which acknowledges our rigorous programming and award status.

Our goal over the next five years is to become both a BAFTA and Oscar qualifying festival which would allow our winning films and filmmakers to be considered for designated categories in these two prestigious award competitions.
