Who? Why? What? How? When? ……… YOU DECIDE

After watching the first episode on the Paramount screen, the audience will direct the next scenes of the film from kiosks. Locations, characters and dialogue are all under voter control. The film and voting will also be available online at for audiences across the world.

Once tallied, the votes will be sent to the production team in London, who will shoot, edit and digitally deliver the next episode in time for screening at the festival the following day.

The story will unfold according to voter choice, building to a hilarious climax in the final episode.

London Calling is world first, uniquely combining art and technology to create some truly hilarious entertainment. Produced by the award-winning creators of cult classic 5 Minute Call (winners of the Supreme Creativity Award 2002).
