The London Short Film Festival returns to London for the 13th year to be as confrontational as ever and prove that the UK is truly a hotbed of film creativity.

The London Short Film Festival, now in its 12th year, has been recognised as the premiere UK showcase for cutting-edge UK independent film. For the January 2015 Festival, we are opening to international filmmakers.

Renowned for daring cross-arts programming, we have showcased the very best of the country’s raw talent for 11 years. The London Short Film Festival is a Mecca for the UK’s young creative talent and a significant date in the UK film calender.

Every year the Festival’s large and loyal audience flock to screenings and events, and this network has grown steadily over almost a decade.


In 2003 Philip Ilson and Kate Taylor organised the first Halloween Short Film Festival at the ICA. This was formed as a continuation of The Halloween Short Film Club which Philip had been programming since 1994. In 2008 the festival became the London Short Film Festival and has been growing year-on-year to take in more films, live music, industry and training events and diverse, high-quality venues.

Kate Taylor’s last Festival was in 2009 and since then the Festival Producer has been Carla MacKinnon (2010), Chloe Roddick (2011 – 2012), Cassandra Neal (2013 – 2014), and we now welcome Joanna Duncombe as the 2015 Producer alongside a new partnership with Shooting People (who have created a new Festival submissions platform: flock).
