What is a Short Film

A short film is any motion picture not long enough to be considered a feature film. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences defines a short film as “an original motion picture that has a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits”.

London Short Film Festival

Breaking into the film industry is much harder than it seems. The London Short Film Festival has showcased the very best of the country’s unbridled talent for 14 years and this year promises to be no exception. From film buffs to complete amateurs, The London Short Film Festival has something for everyone.


Kicking off the festival is a screening of ‘WE DARE TO FAIL: 15 Years of LSFF’ by BAFTA winners Simon Ellis, Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy (The Desperate Optimists) and  is hosted on stage by LSFF co-founders Philip Ilson and Kate Taylor. This is an outstanding compilation of past short films screened at The London Short Film Festival.

You can see ‘WE DARE TO FAIL: 15 Years of LSFF’ at the ICA theatre located on The Mall SW1Y 5AH.
