With hundreds of films and events taking place at numerous venues across the city during the four days of ASFF, not to mention all the many distractions of discovering the beautiful city of York and enjoying the social buzz and networking opportunities of the festival, we appreciate it can be hard to fit in everything you want to see.
So if you’ve spotted a film in the programme that you’ve missed, or that you simply can’t fit into your ASFF schedule, make a visit to Explore York, just over the road from the Festival Hub. Here, ASFF presents the Videotheque, where you can browse and watch the full catalogue of short films in the programme, from thrillers to cutting edge experimental movie making, fashion to animation, at your leisure on a computer. There is a capacity of 20.
Explore York, situated in Library Square, close to the Museum Gardens and Lendal Bridge, is the first venue of its kind in the country; as well as continuing its historic role as the city library, it is also the new home to the local history archives, promoting learning and community engagement. There is a café and the venue is fully accessible, including a Changing Places disabled toilet facility. Opening hours are Thursday, 9am to 8pm; Friday 10am to 6pm; Saturday, 9am to 5pm; Sunday, 11am 4pm.
