The Short Cinema is an annual short film festival held at Phoenix Cinema and Art Centre, Leicester, UK showcasing established and emerging talent from across the world with a strong focus on Midlands makers.
Offering an exciting mix of films irrespective of genre, style or budget, The Short Cinema provides writers, producers and directors with the opportunity to exhibit their work on the big screen to a discerning audience of film-lovers.
The festival provides filmmakers with an opportunity to meet and discuss their work with their peers, strengthening bonds with the Midlands film-making community alongside screenings curated by partners such as Iris Prize, FlatPack and Random Acts.
Over the last thirteen years, The Short Cinema has grown from a small grassroots pop-up screening to a much bigger (still grass roots) festival. Its aim is to continue this growth, exploring and providing new opportunities for anyone involved in film to develop and exhibit their work, both in the Midlands region and around the world and celebrate short film as an art form in its own right.
The 2019 festival takes place at Phoneix Cinema and Art Centre, Leicester, UK, between 20th– 24th August.
