Let's All Be Free Film Festival


The Let’s All Be Free Film Festival explores and celebrates what 'being free' means to people all over the world, via the medium of film.

We seek to create a comfortable and open forum that will encourage constructive dialogue and debate around the notion of being free, with the aim of creating greater understanding and awareness around this vital issue. 

We want to use this enhanced knowledge and insight to implement a tangible, positive force for good in the world around us, and inspire others to do the same.

One of the ways we want to achieve this is through creative expression – through the powerful and timeless medium of film. We seek to find the best, boldest and brightest cinematic expressions of being free, and showcase them to the world. We want to know what being free means to YOU.

We welcome anyone who is interested in becoming involved, in whatever way they can. If you have something to say about what being free means to you, then we want to hear it!



The Let’s All Be Free Film Festival is one part of a wider creative project, also entitled Let's All Be Free. This cross-platform initiative encompasses many things - the annual film festival; a creative platform for essays, photography, art and music exploring what it means to be free; an online exhibition space and community; a forum for discussion and debate; a regular blog; and short documentaries where people are asked what 'being free' means to them.

The inaugural Let's All Be Free Film Festival was held at the Brunei Gallery in central London from 5th-7th April 2013, and was a resounding success! Hundreds of film-lovers, filmmakers, activists, academics, press, curious participants and the general public gathered to watch nearly 40 superb new short films from around the world – a truly diverse range of fascinating voices that explored what it means to be free.

We hosted panel discussions and audience Q&As with high-profile guests such as BAFTA nominated director Kim Longinotto, Amnesty International, filmmaker and award-winning human rights activist Marijn Poels, civil liberties organisation Liberty, The Equality Trust, Institute for Fiscal Studies economist Prof. Richard Disney, and international filmmakers visiting from across the world to see their film on the big screen.

"The Let’s All Be Free Film Festival was brilliant – I really hope it’s back next year!” (Hannah Khalil, BBC)

“Definitely a bright new star on London’s film festival circuit and hopefully here to stay.” (Life Is A Festival)

"We loved being at Let's All Be Free! Amazing films and people!" (Rachael Henley, actress - Chronicles of Narnia)

"Wow - the Let's All Be Free Film Festival was one of the best independent film festivals I've been to in years." (Maggie Gogler, producer)

Let’s All Be Free was founded in 2012 by award-winning film director Tariq Nasir, who has been exploring issues of equality and what it means to be free all his life. Born in New York to an American mother and a Palestinian father, Tariq has lived in Palestine, Jordan, the UK and the US, and has always wanted to improve communication and understanding between people, a shared aim of the Let’s All Be Free project. 

As well as having extensive experience in conflict resolution and diversity training, he has also led workshops to combat prejudice and has facilitated Jewish-Palestinian dialogue groups. He has always been passionate about cross-cultural activities that aim to promote greater understanding between people.

With its overwhelmingly successful debut, The Let’s All Be Free Film Festival has caught the world’s attention - and we want you to be part of the next one!

Nosce te ipsum (Know Thyself) - Trailer

Arthur is a solitary man, unable to get away from the imaginary world he has created. As he discovers the deviations of his own self, he rebels and chooses to be free. But can anyone escape from their inner mind and seek freedom outside themselves?

Know Thyself

Director: Réjane Ruby.
Arthur is a solitary man, unable to get away from the imaginary world he has created. As he discovers the deviations of his own self, he rebels and chooses to be free. But can anyone escape from their inner mind and seek freedom outside themselves?

Him Himself

Director: Pierre Dawalibi.
A conflict as old as Adam; it is the cause of every war, every greed and every agony; it is the dualism between you and your own self, between your desires and your fears, what you want and what you must. This movie is a reflection for every spectator to identify with, to observe what he/she is really doing to him/herself.


Director: Erik de Goederen.
A nine year old boy (Pepijn Borst) lives in a world which, seen through his eyes, is deeper and more mysterious than a superficial glimpse would suggest. Sometimes the most simple things in life contain sheer beauty and enchantment.
But the boy is lonely too, because he cannot share his experiences with others. Who sees what he sees? Who hears what he hears? And who dreams what he is dreaming?

Democracy Is ...

The film "Democracy is ..." by Tino Schwanemann is a controversy on democracy. Is our society really democratic? Can everyone be part of it? Or is the act of being part in democracy dependent to the access on technology, progression or any resources of information, as philosophers like Paul Virilio or Jean Baudrillard already claimed? The film is an inventory of our surrounding reality and its goal is to initiate discussions on democracy. This is the winner film of Gesellschafte...
