Conference Centre, British Library
£5 / £3 concessions
Watch the winter programme of award-winning short films from around the world from the Future Shorts Festival. It's the biggest pop up film festival of its kind, showcasing the most exciting short films from around the world. The festival currently takes place in over 50 cities and 17 countries and comprises a worldwide audience of half a million people. Run by the creators of the acclaimed Secret Cinema, Future Shorts has redefined the way we experience film.
Highlights include the winner of the Grand Jury Prize at 2012 Sundance Film Festival ‘Fishing without nets’, Jury prize winner at Woodstock Film Festival ‘We’re Leaving’ and from the Oscar nominated director Patrik Eklund, ‘Slitage (Seeds of the Fall)’.
Sound Edit film screening
There will also be a screening of the winning film from our wildlife sounds competition with IdeasTap. We set filmmakers the challenge to create a short film or animation in response to our weird and wonderful wildlife sounds, from a haddock under water that sounds like a snare drum to bats that sound like human beatboxers.
This event is part of our Spring Festival 2013: a celebration of fashion, design and film at the Library.
