Dedicated and passionate about short film, The Edinburgh Short Film Festival brings the best contemporary Scottish, UK and international short film to the city each year. Launched in 2011, we’ve held screenings in cinemas and Arts Centres and held pavement screenings outside coffee kiosks and even film nights in basement Karaoke bars!
We also programme our best short films for international festivals this year including Tokyo’s Short Shorts and the Sardinia Film Festival.
For Hidden Door 2017, we’re planning a night of some of our best animated short films and a night of outstanding live action short film.
The cinema space was formerly the talent dressing rooms, it’s a nice layout for the cinema space and the pale yellow walls have a matrix of peeling, flaking paint that hangs languorously off the ceiling, it gives the place a kind of weird, top-down melted effect. In fact, it’s a kind of like being inside one of my lemon cheesecakes!
