Festival start: 22 April 2024      Festival end: 22 April 2024

Underneath the Floorboards is based in London's buzzing artistic area of Hackney.

For our 9th Edition we will be continue our online event, which will be screened for a month by our online platform: https://www.visualcontainer.tv/ which screens worldwide and got over twelve thousand views last time around, and this time we're aiming for more.

Our showcase is open to artists and filmmakers from all around the world whose work has an experimental, non-linear narrative form. We want to see variety, whether it be experimental film, video art, visual art, digital art, experimental documentary or animation.

No bias, no prejudice, we don't care if you didn't study in the most prestigious art schools. We want to see unique work of an artistic nature, which creates its own language.

Get your work showcased at Underneath the Floorboards and benefit from the company of other artists and filmmakers in the heart of London's creative hub.

If the next event is once again online, we will make sure to promote it to the corresponding community of filmmakers and visual artist, so we get the maximum of views possible.

Your work will be promoted through our network to engage with the largest possible audience to create an innovative platform where artists and audiences can come together.
