LOCK 4 TIMES is 25 minute true-life documentary film, that examines the real stories of 4 disparate people behind the headlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.  It was created, directed, filmed, edited, and produced by Alex Gulland.


On 23 March 2020, The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, made a stark television announcement to the entire population.

From this evening, I must give the British people an elementary instruction - you must stay at home.”

Previous advice on social distancing about containing the COVID -19 virus, now became legally mandatory.

In an unprecedented move -The UK was put into what became known as Lockdown.

The catalyst for LOCK 4 TIMES was the tragic story of a local woman whose ex-partner, a military veteran, went missing during the early stages of Lockdown.

Millions have been affected by Covid-19 and. LOCK 4 TIMES gives a voice to 4 people whose lives have changed forever and how they have coped, with arguably one of the most significant social upheavals since World War II.

We are proud to announce that the film was selected for 10 international film festivals  - including Cannes, Paris, and New York.


*The "Honorable Mention" is an extra distinction of the official competition. That is to say; the Jury does not intervene; it is granted exclusively by the Festival directors. Here, the film that has distinguished itself from the others will be awarded, in its general aspect, concept, aesthetics, and/or particularly brilliant performance, in its direction, photography, acting, editing, and/or soundtrack.
