Submissions for this year’s Short Sounds Film programme were at a record high with an extremely high standard across the board giving selectors a tough task. Our first collection includes five fantastic films from filmmakers around the world including the extremely visceral French short The Van, previously selected by the Cannes Film festival. Shorts #1 will be available to view on this page during the festival (25th - 28th Feb) including a curated program of shorts in competition and a selection out of competition all available on-demand for registered festival attendees.
