Launched in August 2020 and taking place annually in London, GlobeScreen Shorts is one of the few short film festivals in the UK that actively connects the next generation of directing talent with established industry professionals working in European film production, distribution, exhibition and journalism. We carefully select our juries to ensure that participating filmmakers at GlobeScreen Shorts connect with established industry figures throughout the festival and into the next stage of their careers.

In October 2021, between 10 – 13 films will be accepted for the official selection, three of which will screen as part of the Animation Screenings on Day 2 of the festival. Filmmakers will also have the opportunity to win one of five awards in the second year of the festival – ‘best short’, ‘best animated short’, ‘cinematography’, ‘ sound’,  &  ‘editing’.

GlobeScreen Shorts is operated by GlobeScreen Group. To learn more about the company’s international programming and other festivals visit:
