London Short Film Festival

WHAT: Returning for its eighth year, this film festival showcases the work of independent, up-and-coming film-makers at venues across London. For the truly cutting-edge, there’s also an expanding multimedia section of the festival.

WHEN: January 7-16.

DO IT BECAUSE: Exploring a well-run film festival can be a uniquely satisfying experience, and in London it’s an opportunity to make the most of living in a city that takes its cultural life seriously. And with short films, you can see a selection of works rather than committing to one for two hours.
