The short films they didn't want you to see...
  • No film can be too political
  • We accept everything - from direct polemic, to experimental film, from original fiction to observational documentary.
  • We want opinion, analysis, personal stories, ideology, vision and fresh perspectives.
  • Challenge, explore, celebrate, discuss…

In short, any film that you feel is radical is welcome. As long as it is short (under 30 minutes). 


We will be giving awards in the following categories:

Films made by activists and full time film-makers:

  • Best Factual Film
  • Best Fiction Film

Films made by Students:

  • Best Fiction Film
