In 2022, record numbers of people attended our screenings and viewed our series of free digital short film screenings from all around the world – each of which had a truly amazing mix of International and local Short Film Submissions. Audiences enjoyed brilliant Short Film productions, Charity and Community films, and a melodic selection of videos from some of the area’s most talented musicians – ideal for lifting the spirits in these challenging times!
And now, we greatly look forward to the 2023 Film Festival next year. We will continue with our successful mix of hybrid on- and off-line events, we hope you will join us, online and in person November 2023 to watch an exciting and inspiring selection of local and international short films.
