Founded in 2007, Festival of the Moving Image (FOMI) is an award-winning student film festival, promoting emerging student filmmakers and championing creativity and innovation. One of the leading university events for the exhibition, interpretation and study of audio visual culture, FOMI showcases work in a wide range of media from across the world, as well as hosting key figures in the UK and international film industries.

Our theme this year is Reflections - between the present and the past, within and outside of our borders and between the beginnings and the futures of cinema itself. Put simply - how can cinema offer alternatives to hegemonic forms of expression? This year, we also aim to reflect on FOMI's history by celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Film & TV Society, with a special line up of anniversary events planned.

As with every edition of the festival, we hope to continue making FOMI a space to forge new connections and promote a love of independent film across the student body and wider London public.
