Welcome to One Pound Super Short Film Festival (OPSSFF)!

Our premise is simple: spend a pound* to submit a super short for a chance to take home the pounds spent by everyone else - as long as it’s one minute or less.

An old cat video? A Japanese experimental film shot on celluloid? Security footage of paranormal activity in your grandma’s kitchen? A TikTok dance routine? Half of a music video for your tribute bands’ newest single? We’ll screen them all on January 28th 2022 at a hybrid event at UAL’s London College of Communication as part of FASE 22, a series of free screening events curated by the 3rd year BA Film and Screen Studies course.

Who’ll take home the jackpot full of one-pound coins? It’s up to you to decide via a live polling system.

*Transaction and FilmFreeway fees apply

The more shorts, the bigger the win. Increase the size of the prize and your chances of winning by inviting friends and family to send us their films and to (hopefully) vote for yours.

But with every game comes its rules:

*One entry per person or group.
*Original films of up to one minute in length of any genre and from any release year are eligible.
*Premiere status is not required.
*You must be 18+ to participate and claim the prize.
*We reserve the right to refund the fee for inappropriate entries and exclude them from our programme.
*To collect the prize, you must attend the in-person or online event on January 28th 2022.
*If the winner is absent, the prize will be given to the creator of the next most voted for short.
*In the case of a draw, the prize will be split between the winners.

    This was simply amazing! The successful blend of live / streaming event was a knockout. I loved the concept of pay 1£, chance to win every £. Thank you so very much 1£ Team for organizing this superlative film festival. It was a true honour to have my film "Toast" play with this boss collection of films. Brilliant opportunity for artists! Highly recommended. Cheers.
