FRAGMENTS FESTIVAL - Celebrating inclusivity through film

It is no coincidence that the first edition of Fragments, a festival which aims to celebrate and champion inclusivity, launches in a year of uncertainty and change for the UK. As a London-based festival it is vital for us to express solidarity and unity within the film industry. In programming our festival we will spotlight not only the fantastic home-grown talent that the UK has, but also the incredible filmmakers and film markets across Europe and around the world.

Having researched the demographic of filmmakers represented at film festivals we have found that they fail to reflect the talent of not only women behind the camera, but also people of colour, LGBTQIA+ individuals, differently abled filmmakers and many other groups. In the first edition of Fragments Festival we focus not only on giving a platform to underrepresented filmmakers to exhibit their work, but also giving those who may not regularly attend the cinema the chance to see a wide range of excellent films.
