Edinburgh Short Film Festival wings short film across the seas to the 2017 Sardinia Film Festival

The Sardinia Film Festival  was founded in 2006 and runs for one week in the delightfully picturesque towns in the north of Sardinia. Some 500 miles from mainland Italy, Sardinia’s isolation from mainland Europe has given it a unique culture and flavour, from the Catalan/Moorish architecture to its Italian cuisine and it’s closeness to French-speaking Corsica, Sardinia’s cosmopolitan culture and history has long been subject to foreign influences,including  Vikings to the Bourbons and now it’s […]

Preview of Edinburgh Shorts Live Action Night at Hidden Door 2017: Sat June 3rd

Saturday June 3rd will be our last night at the 2017 Hidden Door festival and no doubt we’ll be feeling quite sad to close the cinema door behind us again, but at least we will be going out with a bang (literally so, in the case of one of our films!)

So, as always, it gives us a lot of pleasure to bring our final programme to Hidden Door 2017.  We are also hoping to welcome […]

Edinburgh Shorts at Hidden Door 2017

We’re back at Hidden Door for the 2017 events and this year’s abandoned building of choice is the Leith Theatre!

Our first night there was on Saturday 27th May when we and we also held a night of black comedy on Tuesday night. As usual, the Hidden Door team have undertaken a huge and awe-inspiring job of work on the building which was last occupied in 1989.

Luckily for us, Alexandra Person was on hand to take some stills […]
