LSFF × The Arts Foundation
Short Documentary Film Screening + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Join us for a special screening featuring the extraordinary shortlisted filmmakers of The Arts Foundation Futures Awards 2024 for Short Documentary Film.

These powerful new contemporary filmmakers will present four compelling short films, and discuss their work in conversation. Featuring:

Puffling by Jessica Bishopp 
A coming-of-age documentary about growing up and making choices, Puffling explores the delicate interplay between wildlife, the environment, and human life.⁠

Heart Eyes and a World by Rosie Morris 
Bringing the viewer into the bedrooms of four 15 year old girls with a behind the scenes view of the selfie, Heart Eyes and a World raises questions about the normalisation of self-objectification. ⁠

The Black Cop
by Cherish Oteka
An intimate portrait of Gamal 'G' Turawa, an ex-Metropolitan police officer, who explores his memories of racially profiling and harassing black people and homophobia in his early career.⁠

The Boxing Bishop
by Kateryna Pavlyuk
When youth violence in the North London town of Edmonton escalated to a fatality a month, a local Archbishop made the bold suggestion that young people in the area throw more punches. ⁠

The shortlist was selected by expert industry figures: Louisa Dent, Managing Director, Curzon; Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning BBC, Documentaries and Raul Niño Zambrano, Artistic Director, Sheffield Doc Fest who said:

“The four shortlisted filmmakers for the Arts Foundation Futures Awards 2024 demonstrate the great range and breadth of short documentary filmmaking practice in the UK. It’s been a real pleasure and privilege to watch their respective work and highly original ways of thinking about documentary form and storytelling; from our relationship with nature, to centring under-represented communities, telling local and global histories of migration and displacement, to highly personal stories of intimacy and emotion.”
