Short films are the future

The Suffolk Short Film Festival took place at Ipswich Film Theatre on October 8th, 9th & 10th 2021. Submissions for the 2022 event will open on December 1st 2021.

We believe that short films are the future. Telling a story in a short film takes skill and determination, but it also frees you from the constraints and influences often associated with features or traditional commissioning. Shorts are not just practice runs, they are an art form in their own right. This means that we are looking for potential. We are looking for films that experiment, push boundaries, tell a story you haven't heard before and do so in a way that captivates the audience. We are not just looking for highly polished, big budget productions, we want to celebrate all filmmakers, regardless of their access to resources.
