Our festival gives our London audiences a chance to see the wide variety of fantastic short films that are being produced around the world. We accept any genre from drama to action to horror to documentary to comedy to animation and we prize originality above all. We also concentrate more on the individual talents that go into making a successful film such as directing, script-writing, acting and production values.

Our audiences are a discerning and diverse group, many of who will be involved in the creative arts themselves. They are more open to newness and originality so we encourage the submitting of films with a unique sensibility. We also have a large database of production companies and talent agencies based in London who will be receiving free invitations to the festival to scout for upcoming talent.

The films will be judged by a panel of filmmakers, performers and creative people who know and love films. We are looking for dynamic scripts, direction and performances. Films that have a good rhythm and no dead spots.

We are pursuing different possibilities within the broadcast industry that we hope will be, in the near future, of benefit to our festivals and the filmmakers that take part. There is a high demand for well curated and audience tested creative content and we plan on taking advantage of this need. Updates will be announced on our social media and newsletter.

We look forward to seeing your efforts.
