The London Short Film Festival (LSFF) takes place during ten days in January in the UK capital's best cinema venues like the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Hackney’s MOTH Club, BFI Southbank, Curzon Soho, and Regent St Cinema. The festival serves a platform for emerging talent alongside the established cinema-makers. About 2500 films are submitted annually both from the UK and international filmmakers. 500 films get to curated screenings, while 36 exceptional short films get awarded with prizes by an international jury.
London Short Film Festival has been held since the early 2000s. It draws about 10,000 people to London's historic cinematic centres, making a considerable impact on British cinema and its legacy. The festival is praised for nurturing new talent and taking creative risks supporting aspiring directors, DoPs, editors, and actors.
