After a successful inaugural event with sold-out screenings, short film premieres, and dozens of excellent short films, the London International Short Film Festival will return to Bermondsey’s Shortwave Cinema for a second year of showcasing the best of short film in the heart of one of the world’s greatest filmmaking cities.

LISFF invites filmmakers and film fans to celebrate the possibilities of short form film. Exhibiting filmmakers will be invited to screenings and exclusive networking events, and will showcase their talents, share their innovations, and build contacts for future collaborations.

LISFF will be especially prioritising new talent, independent spirit, and low-budget innovation, and the LISFF Awards will recognise the year’s best in their genres.

    I had the privilege of our film, 'Seared' being selected for this year's festival. Although I was unable to attend, the staff I spoke with were all lovely. They allowed me to Dropbox my film for easy delivery. I truly hope I can attend next time!

    Really enjoyable festival at a great London venue with a nice bar for those after screening drinks and networking. There was a slight projection issue on the opening night (films projected at incorrect aspect ratio) but the audience didn't seem to notice. With friendly organizers, and a warm, unpretentious atmosphere - this first year festival has a promising future ahead.
