Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF)

The eighth Aesthetica Short Film Festival is open for entries, presenting a fantastic opportunity for emerging and established filmmakers to showcase their work to an international audience.

ASFF provides a platform for emerging and established filmmakers to showcase their work to a wider audience, and is looking for practitioners who are pushing the boundaries of short film forward.

ASFF Prizes include:

• Screenings at ASFF 2017 (7-11 November in York)
• Awards for Festival Winner (£1,000), Best Film in each category, and People’s Choice
• The Northern Film School Award for Best Screenplay (£1,000)
• Opportunities for further exposure through Aesthetica and its online channels

ASFF accepts all genres: advertising, animation, artists’ film, comedy, dance, documentary, drama, experimental, fashion, music video and thriller. Running times up to 30 minutes.

New to 2018, we open our minds to longer-form stories, accepting submissions in Narrative and Documentary Feature Films, over 60 minutes. In addition, we’re inviting filmmakers to submit Virtual and Augmented Reality projects, to explore game changing forms of storytelling, for fully immersive experiences.

For further information, please contact , or call 01904 629 137, or visit

Deadline is Thursday 31 May 2018 at 23:55
