Explore York. Experience Film.

An established and dynamic player on the UK film festival circuit, the Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF) is a celebration of independent film from across the world, and an outlet for championing and supporting short filmmaking. The ASFF 2014 programme is now underway with further announcements of films, speakers and venues to come.

Spanning all genres including advertising, animation, artists’ film, comedy, documentary, drama, experimental, fashion, music video and thriller, the festival showcases its films across 15 distinct and historic locations in the city of York. Moving between medieval halls, ancient city walls, boutique cinemas, galleries and museums, the festival invites visitors to create their own unique viewing experience.

Alongside screenings, ASFF also presents a series of masterclasses and workshops with leading industry figures, working with such organisations as BAFTA, Channel 4, Film4, Warp Films, Raindance, Sheffield Doc/Fest and many more. There are also guest screenings, networking opportunities and special events throughout the weekend.

New for 2014: Meet The Film Festivals Event – an opportunity for filmmakers and festival programmers to network with each other and share good practice. Festivals confirmed include London Short Film Festival, Leeds International Film Festival, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Bradford International Film Festival, Short Shorts & Asia Film Festival from Japan and many more. Booking details coming soon.

Also, we are offering discounts for educational group bookings. For more information, please email Lorna Clayton-Rawle.
