Super Shorts International Film Festival is back and this year to celebrate its 11th Anniversary and we intend on making this year's event bigger than ever!
Super Shorts has awarded over £20,000 ($30,000) in cash and £20,000 ($30,000) worth of prizes to talented filmmakers and screenwriters.
In the last ten years we've shown over 2,000 incredible short films, from slick 35mm shorts to weird and wonderful experimental films. We've held over 120 events, including seminars, panel discussions, workshops and in 2011 all our officially selected films were streamed during the festival on Dailymotion reaching an audience of over 150, 000 people.
The 2014 Jury is still being finalised and we hope to announce some very exciting names soon. For past editions we had Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series), Alex Zane (Acclaimed Radio and TV Presenter), Philip Bloom (world renowned DOP and filmmaker) and Andrew Scott (Olivier Award winning stage and screen Actor who is best known for working with Steven Spielberg in Saving Private Ryan and Moriarty in BBC's production of Sherlock).
