The Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2014 is now open for entries, offering both emerging and established filmmakers the opportunity to engage with new, international audiences and interact with some of the biggest personalities in the film industry today.
In addition to screenings throughout the ASFF weekend, prizes include £500 for the Festival Winner, £250 for the People’s Choice Winner, screenings at a number of other UK festivals and editorial on the Aesthetica and ASFF blogs. The time limit is 30 minutes and categories for entry are: Drama, Comedy, Thriller, Animation, Documentary, Artists’ Film, Music Video and Experimental.
ASFF have also announced two exciting new strands for 2014 – Advertising and Fashion. It is the only UK film festival to represent these genres, presenting a rare opportunity to showcase films that drive aesthetic innovation to those that debate contemporary issues.
ASFF 2014 will take place in 15 unique and iconic locations across the historic city of York, including medieval halls and boutique cinemas, during the weekend of 6 – 9 November 2014. In addition to four days of screenings, there will also be a variety of opportunities to engage with leading industry figures and fellow filmmakers throughout an exciting series of masterclasses, workshops and networking sessions; last year’s attendees included representatives from BAFTA, Channel 4, Film4, Warp Film, Raindance and Sheffield Doc/Fest.
