The Aesthetica Short Film Festival is a BAFTA-recognised international film festival based in York, UK. It is an important outlet for moving image and digital culture, creating a platform to champion short film internationally. The festival holds talent development at its core and leaves a lasting legacy by inspiring innovation in film. Its seventh edition ran over an unprecedented five day period, providing even more opportunities for talent development, networking and inspirational film viewing.­

The 2018 festival will mark our 8th year of film screenings, masterclasses and guest programmes. As the festival grows and develops, we strive to bring more of the best cinema to audiences in York. This year, for the first time, we are accepting feature film submissions in both Narrative and documentary genres.
