Imperial War Museum Short Film Festival

Oct 18 2017

R3store Studios are delighted to be sponsoring The Best Documentary & Best Use of Archive Awards

From the Syria conflict to modern terrorism and from suffragette surgeons to war art, IWM Short Film Festival presents an imaginative, edgy and challenging selection of films responding to past and contemporary conflict.

The festival shows documentaries, dramas and animations by filmmakers from all over the world. The screenings explore themes from displacement to fear, and the special evening events offer an insight into the challenges of documenting terror and a chance to experience hostile environment training.

Six awards will be given out to remarkable films, and at each screening you can cast your vote for the Audience Vote Award. Filmmakers will also be in with a chance of having their film screened at Picturehouse cinemas.

The Festival is part of Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11, a major exhibition season showcasing contemporary artists’ responses to war and conflict since the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001.
