We have been fortunate to create an in-kind partnership with ÉCU Film Festival in Paris which will allow us to bring the Best of ÉCU to London in 2016. By not charging filmmakers and asking audiences members to ‘pay what they like’, we will be able to make the film programme open and accessible to all filmmakers and audiences alike.” VAUT Film Festival Team

We are very proud of ÉCU’s partnership with the first edition of Vault Film Festival. The festival will take place in central London on Sundays between 14:30 – 16:00 on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th February 2016. The Film Festival is the newest addition to the Vault Festival of Arts, which will see it’s fourth festival taking place in the edgy underground location of The Vaults, Waterloo for six weeks in 2016: January 27th – March 6th. 

Film screened will be Short Form (5-10 min) or Long Form (20-25 min) categories in Drama, Comedy, Experimental, Documentary, and Animation with Music Videos being 5 min. One Long Form film will be screened during each session. Three films from each category will be shortlisted for the VFF Awards with an overall winner being awarded the ÉCU Independent Spirit Award, which has a cash prize of £250.
