As you may know our 2020 festival was postponed in March last year due to Covid and was subsequently was postponed on two more occasions due to further lockdowns. We made a decision to produce split the 2020 Festival in two, presenting an online in May this year which was the International section and the British New Wave selection we planned to produce as a LIVE event in the Autumn. Part One of the festival took place in the Spring (10th – 16th May) over on Bingewave showcasing all the international films.

Part Two – the British section has been reimagined as a special 17th Edition British Shorts Festival to take place 19th – 26th October, screening in-person at the Instituto Cervantes and the Chapeltown Picture House showing the very best  of local, North West and  UK wide filmmaking talent from our 2020 selection.

There will also be a couple of European programmes, Spanish and Italian Shorts plus a the odd international film in a few programmes where our programming team wanted to show the programme as originally intended last year. Finally a chance to catch up on what you missed in the May online edition with our International Award Winners programme.

Please see the list below for the programmes that are appearing in our May premiere online edition. For participating filmmakers, if one of your films in one of these programmes then you should have heard from us by now, if not then please contact us to confirm the programme that your film will be screening in.
