Dates and times

4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

Equally as enthralling as the county it represents, the Yorkshire Short Film Competition continues to go from strength to strength, encapsulating the best of up and coming Yorkshire filmmakers and their immense talent. The only thing these films have in common is their sheer brilliance, as the films include everything from a local Leeds documentary about a mountaineering bouncer overcoming PTSD in ‘The White Fox’ to the surreal comedy ‘Tyresome’ from the slightly warmer climes of South Yorkshire, which ends with a surprising bang. Watch Local, Support Yorkshire Filmmakers!

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