We’ll soon be opening our call for entries for our 2019 edition but before we do so, we thought we’d publish a quick look back to the 8th edition which ended November 10th screening one of the UK’s strongest short film programmes of the year, and we were delighted to have sold out 6 out of 8 of our screening nights at the Filmhouse and Summerhall!
There was a great atmosphere and some packed screenings, thanks to all 747 audience members who came along!
We hosted a screening of some of the best Mexican Short Films of recent years, curated by the Mexican Film Institute as well as an evening curated by the Estonian Short Film Centre, of excellent Estonian animations, curated by Peter Murdmaa and including work by noted Estonian animator, Priit Pärn!
It’s also been a pleasure to work with our partner festivals in 2018; Firenze FilmCorti, The Adriatic Film Festival, the Fastnet Film Festival, Hidden Door, Sardinia Film Festival, MECAL Barcelona and the Edinburgh Printmakers!
There was also some great networking and parties! As well as Q and As with visiting film-makers from across the globe!
We were delighted to award trophies and prizes for Best Film won by FAUVE by Jeremy Comte. Best Animation was Wicked Girl by Turkish animator Ayce Kartal, and Best Scottish Short Film this year was won by Blue Christmas by Charlotte Wells.
Already looking forward to 2019 and we’ve some new events planned, including an Animation Weekend and a programme of Amerian Docs, so watch this space!
