Celebrating the most outstanding short films from around the world, this Bristol-based film festival is celebrating its 14th year in 2008 and runs from November 18th to 23rd.
Not only offering a platform to up and coming film-makers, the festival also offers and opportunity to celebrate leaders in the field. Importantly, this is also a festival which opens its doors to budding filmmakers to come along and share their ideas and find new momentum. The runtimes may be brief, but one thing this festival is never short of is inspiration.
