Call for Entries: 1 December 2015 – 31 May 2016
Entries are open for the 6th edition of the BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival, one of the UK’s leading short film festivals and most exciting cinematic events.
Films 30 minutes’ long and under are accepted within all genres, including fashion and advertising.
The festival is an ambassador for innovation and excellence in filmmaking.
It provides a chance for both established and emerging filmmakers to get their work seen by vast audiences, plus some of the world’s most acclaimed talents, and connect with festival programmers from the UK and around the world.
2015 was the festival’s 5th anniversary, and in that time it has screened over 1,500 films from over 65 countries.
The festival received 20,000 admissions across the four-day event, and held over 35 masterclasses and industry sessions with representatives from organisations such as Channel 4, Warp Films, Association of Camera Operators and many more, creating a place for discussion and debate while filmmakers shared best practice and gained essential advice.
Prizes for ASFF 2016 include multiple screenings at the festival, eligibility to enter the BAFTA awards, screenings at a number of other festivals and venues as part of the ASFF Film Tour.
There are also awards for Best of Fest, People’s Choice and Best of Category, plus cash prizes to be won, editorial in Aesthetica Magazine (180,000 readership worldwide) and exposure through ASFF’s online channels.
