SHORT FILMS

Films can be as short as you like however the ideal maximum running time should be 12 to 15 minutes. This event is dedicated to the art of the short. We will look at films that run a minute or two longer than that and will consider them if their quality is high enough.

Shorts can be horror, science fiction and fantasy, and can be a mixture of live action, animation and music video.

Short Film Exhibition Format
Can be filmed on 35, 16 mm or video but entries must must be on DVD or CD-ROM, the same with exhibition copies.
