We love short film! We think short film is perfect for science fiction, it gives filmmakers the chance to play with ideas and high concepts without having to add drama for the sake of filling ninety minutes. We’ve watched hundreds of films and selected our favourites!
We hope you can make it one of our shorts programmes at Stratford Picturehouse - see them on the big screen!
