This is the UK’s only short film festival dedicated to showcasing the cinematic talents of women, and it celebrates its fourth year this week.

There will be 10 competition screenings across a range of different genres with everything from documentaries to romcoms featuring. As well as this, there will be a host of events, our chief pick being Live Wire, a night of film and comedy that features writer, comedian, actor Isy Suttie and Miss L, the creator of the cult and mysterious website Casting Call Woe.
