2022 Festival

Florida USA

The 16th edition of I Will Tell International Film Festival expands across the pond from London to Florida from October 27th to November 3rd closing with our spectacular awards ceremony with more than 20 prizes to filmmakers from across the globe.

After a stunningly successful run in London and a short stopover in Trinidad and Tobago for our annual Charitable Screening in partnership with Bright Future TNT, we are ready to bring the best of the fest to South Florida in Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach and Delray Beach. Join us for outdoor beach screenings, Red Carpet ceremonies, Networking events and more.


2022 Film Premiere Highlights

Founded in 2007 by Jenny Lee, the name of the Festival comes from a word spoken in the Senna dialect in Mozambique Ndinadzawapanga (pronounced Nah-jah-pang-ga) and means  I Will Tell. It speaks to the power of story telling to provoke change at an individual and societal level.  The Festival is now a hybrid event that runs in London, Florida and Trinidad and Tobago in person with an enhanced virtual experience available globally online.  We support a range of established and emerging filmmakers and have premiered films such as Ava DuVernay’s 13th,  hosted high profile talent such as Lashana Lynch (007), global icons such as Raymond Santana (Central Park 5).

Film Submissions

We host Films and Discussions with Filmmakers, Subject Matter experts and Global icons. We have a unique blend of challenge and celebration and after 16 years, we love what we do even more. We are grateful for the organisations that have partnered with us to make the festival the very best it can be.

The Story Of I WILL TELL

I Will Tell is the festival of choice globally for filmmakers who tell those stories that would otherwise not be heard, the event of choice for those seeking inspiration, and the expression of the love to our world in a way that is relevant, tangible and meaningful

Anel, a young, ambitious girl from Mozambique shares with a visiting missionary her dreams to travel the world and help others. But a young man from the village reminds her that girls are not allowed to go to school, so her dreams could never become a reality. Although visibly deflated, Anel’s bold response would inspire thousands of people over the next 15 years … Ndinadzawapanga! (I Will Tell)

I Will Tell is held in London, USA and the Caribbean. In addition the livestreaming of the festival gives access to filmmakers and film lovers from across the globe
