The LSFF was founded in 2003 and now in our 20th year, they are a BAFTA and BIFA qualifying, internationally regarded independent short film festival. Each January, LSFF hosts ten days of short films, live events, Q&As and multidisciplinary curation. Over the ten days between 250-500 British and international films are present, each edition, collaboratively programmed down from 5000+ open submissions. There are also a wide range of special events such as workshops, panels and discussion for filmmakers and workers.
LSFF main aim is to highlight a diverse range of filmmakers, visual artists, and creatives from various backgrounds, with a focus on marginalised voices. They pride themselves on 20-years of f giving screen time and visibility to unconventional and thoroughly independent filmmaking, with programming that seeks to place the contemporary in dialogue with its history and the larger world. LSFF is both a platform for filmmakers to gain experience and define their careers, as well as a celebration of the archival treasures and talent that got us here.
