Edinburgh Short Film Festival Submissions Now Open for 2016

Screening the best in International contemporary short cinema at venues across Scotland's ancient capital - beginning on October 26 2016.

The best submissions for 2016 will also be included in our short film programming for other festivals across the UK and Internationally.
This year we are excited to announce that we have a collaboration project with Japan's biggest short film festival, Short Shorts Film Festival! We're delighted to play host to a hand-picked selection of Japanese short film for our 2016 edition later this year AND we'll be taking a short film programme to Tokyo after our event later this year!
We are also excited to have been asked to curate 2 short film programmes for Hidden Door in June, Edinburgh's own unique arts festival!

We've got some other exciting and far-flung partners to announce shortly so keep an eye on our website!

AND we have the Rising Star Trophy for the most promising new film-maker, sponsored by the Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund, with a trophy, tickets to film festivals and a cash prize!

Any genre eligible, maximum length 20 minutes.
