All short films must be submitted by filmmakers living or working in the UK.
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The London Short Film Festival, now in its 11th year, is recognised as the premiere UK-only showcase for cutting-edge UK independent film.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Renowned for daring cross-arts programming, we showcase the very best of the country’s raw talent. The London Short Film Festival is a Mecca for the UK’s young creative talent and a significant date in the UK film calender.
Every year the Festival’s large and loyal audience flock to screenings and events, and this network has grown steadily over almost a decade. The Festival will take place over eleven days at about twenty major London venues in January 2014, combining independent shorts, plus live music, training, parties, art and fashion.

The London Short Film Festival is governed by the content, quality and breadth of films submitted. We believe filmmakers should not be bound by rules, or dictated by genre, length or theme.
But for those who require more information, we accept drama, comedy, documentary, experimental, animation, lo/no-budget, music videos, or a combination of any or all of the above.
