Devoted to screening short films from Edinburgh, Scotland and around the world, Edinburgh Short Film Festival evolved from the Leith Short Film Festival in 2011 and has shown everything – from the first film made in Somalia in 20 years to Oscar-nominated shorts from Australia, the USA and Ireland, as well as short films smuggled out of China and Iran – and hosted visiting film-makers from China, Russia, Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and all over the UK.
Edinburgh Short Film Festival have hosted Q and A sessions with Mark Kermode, held pavement cinema screenings at pancake kiosks, hosted a night of Shetlandic shorts with visiting Viking warriors, and taken some of our best short films on tour to International Film Festivals around the world, from the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival to Tokyo’s Short Shorts Film Festival among many others! This year’s festival is from Oct 28th – Nov 13th 2022.
