“We’re not here to entertain you, we’re here to make you feel uncomfortable”
– Viv Albertine, after Luis Buñuel.
The London Short Film Festival returns to London for the 12th year to be as confrontational as ever and prove that the UK is truly a hotbed of film creativity.
This year, LSFF received an unprecedented number of submissions — 1500 in total, including international submissions for the first time.
LSFF still prides itself on being the biggest showcase of UK short film. Away from the mainstream, UK film culture is alive with incredible artistes and original voices which will be showcased at this year’s Festival. With 34 programmes of predominantly new UK work across all venues, this is a real snapshot of 21st century Britain: love stories, horror stories, comedy, documentary, music and lo-budget gems. Our themed programmes include perennial favourites such as F*cked Up Love, Lo-Budget Mayhem, Night of the Living Docs, Surreal Worlds, Teenage Girls Go Crazy! and Funny Sh*t, to new kids on the block such as Tales of the Unexpected, WTF: Outside the Box, Gothic! and A Musical Box. Plus a chance to see longer work in Long[er] Docs and Short Longes.
