Lizard King Entertainment’s own Carl Mackenzie is the founder and CEO of the Chelmsford Film Festival – the first and only film festival to be hosted in Chelmsford.

Chelmsford Film Festival launched in June 2017 as a 2-day annual event dedicated to promoting and screening the very best of current international short films, music videos and documentaries. Chelmsford Film Festival is a true celebration of film culture and features talks from industry professionals, workshops, screenings and networking opportunities, all rounded off with an awards ceremony and closing party.

In addition to the screenings, CFF is extremely proud to have presented this award to Alice Lowe (Prevenege, Sightseers) in 2017; to Julian Glover (Game of Thrones, Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) in 2018; and to Alan Ford (Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and An American Werewolf in London) in 2019.
