Online Event

Dates and times

4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event


Our first BAFTA qualifying compilation of British Short films is an exploration of transformation, growth and change, as we follow a collection of protagonists, narratives and visuals, changing and responding to the tribulations of life. Ranging from the expected pitfalls of puberty and the subsequent development of self-expression in the surprising and refreshing ‘The Song of a Lost Boy’ to the all-encompassing depiction of trauma and recovery in the sensitive and refreshingly honest ‘Good Thanks, You?’ Join us to transform your own understanding of what British short films are!

Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit for more information.
