Let's All Be Free Film Festival

MISSION & OBJECTIVE:


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!

 


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:


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.

More more information about the Let's All Be Free Film Festival, you can check out our dedicated festival website at www.labfff.com.

To find out more about the wider Let's All Be Free project, please visit: www.letsallbefree.com.

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!
