We are seen as one of the fastest growing short filmmaking communities and events in the UK.

Our members are 11,000+ strong and growing from all around the world.

We screen the short films from original filmmakers looking for that all important break into the film industry.

Our screenings are held all over London to large audiences of professionals and non professional filmmakers and producers. Networking is a very important aspect to our community, we encourage our members to push other filmmakers as well as themselves into not just talking about making film but actually committing and following through with their projects from start to finish helping out where ever they can.

We have a fantastic team of professional filmmakers and rising stars on our team, all of whom are short film producers. We enjoy the medium of short film as it requires a high level of compelling storytelling in such a short amount of time. This is very challenging but very rewarding and we applaud all short films submitted.

This does however mean that we are now able to showcase many more great films on our online platform.
