Online Event

Dates and times

4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

Our second BAFTA qualifying British Short Film Competition is a depiction of endurance, survival and resilience, as our compilation of films shows characters, stories and imagery withstanding the complexities and challenges of everyday existence. Ranging from the acutely relatable yet extraordinarily surreal representation of grief in the immaculately vivid ‘Sudden Light’ to the unnervingly macabre albeit surprisingly realistic portrayal of ritualistic self-sacrifice in the dark yet enthralling ‘Keratin’. Come along to support and sustain up and coming British filmmakers!

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