The London Short Film Festival is considered the city’s most expansive and radically explosive film festival. With over 200 short films, LSFF’s programme is exclusively with the work of Britain’s most exciting up-and-coming filmmakers.
For 10 days the country’s most fiercely independent and creative will see their work grace the screens of the capital’s most prestigious cinemas, from the festival’s home of the ICA to newcomer Shortwave Cinema. With nights of ‘Lo Budget Mayhem’ and ‘Midnight Movies’, the festival sneaks renegades and eccentrics onto the city’s film scene.
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 and diverse, high quality venues.
