No time for hibernation, British Shorts is back

From 15th until 19th January 2015 the 8th edition of the Lichtspielklub short film festival will be celebrated. 111 films in 5 days will feature current British and Irish short films. From Comedy, Drama, Animation, Thriller, Docs, Horror, Experimental films and Music Videos to a retrospective screening featuring the very first British silent films, which – unsurprisingly – were short films and will be accompanied by a new live score.

We have films made by established filmmakers, promising newcomers and talented film students, a mix which makes British Shorts all the more appealing. Big-budget meets low-budget meets no-budget. At the end of the festival the winners of a Jury award as well as an audience award will be announced.

Besides countless screenings the festival’s supporting programme includes concerts, parties, a free film workshop (including a 48-hour film project), an and Open Screening, talks with filmmakers. The infamous British Shorts-Bar will create a great festival atmosphere. For the first time ever the framework programme includes a live stand-up comedy show by Scottish-Variety-Award nominated newcomer Eleanor Morton.
