We are so excited to introduce this years craft element……

Workshops and masterclasses with leading industry professionals have always been a welcome feature of our festival. Although Covid-19 has seen us having to put these on hold for now, we are delighted this year to be able to provide a virtual alternative.

In synch and in tandem with the Festival’s focus on celebrating the short film, In Short will provide a series of bite-sized tutorials by a wide variety of industry professionals on their particular field of expertise.

We invite you to join us virtually for our 12th festival, from Wednesday the 26th to Sunday the 30th May and all free to view.
