Edinburgh Short Film Festival 2014

The ESFF is currently accepting submissions from talented filmmakers who would like to screen a film at the weeklong festival in June 2014. Whether you are a student filmmaker or have been in the industry for years, we’d like to hear from you.

The ESFF is a fast-growing festival in Scotland’s capital, a city famous for its dynamic, cutting-edge cultural scene. All genres of film will be considered; we’ve screened animation, drama, comedy, documentary and art house film in the past. What we’re really looking for are films that hook the audience with their beautifully realised ideas, innovative narratives and inspiring techniques.

Last year, we screened 98 films to hundreds of guests across some of the most prominent arts venues in the city. We received films from 14 countries across the world and international filmmakers from as far afield as Abu Dhabi and Chile joined us, participating in our workshops and attending screenings.

Our plans for the ESFF in 2014 are bigger and better than ever; not only will you get the chance to screen your film at this prominent event, but we’d also like to invite you to participate in workshops and attend the ESFF closing party where you can mingle with other like-minded filmmakers while possibly picking up one of the prizes on offer. All entries will be considered to participate in our forthcoming film festival in Shanghai.
