About London Short Film Festival

Founded in 2003 and now in its 21st year, London Short Film Festival (LSFF) is 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. The festival presents between 250-500 British and international films each edition, collaboratively programmed down from 5000+ open submissions, alongside Special Events and an industry offering of workshops, panels and discussion for filmmakers and workers.

LSFF exists to spotlight a multiplicity of filmmakers, visual artists and creatives, across intersections and with a commitment to peripheral voices. LSFF pride themselves on a 20-year ethos of giving screen-space and visibility to unconventional and thoroughly independent filmmaking, and the festival programming seeks to situate the contemporary in dialogue with its history and the world at large.
