About Edinburgh Short Film Festival

Edinburgh Short Film Festival Call for Entries 2017, ESFF. Submission deadlines & call for entries, prizes & events for 2017. Short Film Festivals 2017

Devoted to screening short film from Edinburgh, Scotland and around the world, The ESFF
evolved from the Leith Short Film Festival in 2011 and has shown everything – from the first
film made in Somalia in 20 years, to Oscar nominated shorts from Australia, the USA and
Ireland, as well as short films smuggled out of China and Iran – and hosted visiting film-makers
from China, Russia, Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and all over the UK.

We have hosted Q and A sessions with Mark Kermode, held pavement cinema screenings
at pancake kiosks, hosted a night of Shetlandic shorts with visiting Viking warriors, and we’ve
taken some of our best short films on tour to International Film Festivals around the world, from
the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival to Tokyo’s Short Shorts Film Festival among many others!
