Six short films from the BFI Future Film Festival 2020, exploring coming-of-age in the 21st century.

Specially selected from the BFI Future Film Festival main programme, these short films explore what it means to be a young adult in the world today - from the streets of Prague and Brunei to the world of love and dating as a piece of toast helplessly in love with an egg.  

The collection also highlights the two films nominated in our Best Short Film aged 16-18 category: Home on the Road and A Filthy Habit.

Love, friendship, gentrification and gender are explored in this collection of films that shine a light on life growing up today, and showcases some of the brightest emerging, talented filmmakers from across the world.

Although these films have not been certified by the BBFC we recommend a minimum age of 15.

We are proud to present the following six films as part of #GenerationNow.
