The fourth edition of the Aesthetica Short Film Festival launches today!
For the next four days York will become a living cinema with 300 films screening across the city in the genres of comedy, drama, documentary, animation, fashion, advertising, artists’ film, experimental, music video and thriller. All of the films screening are up to win an award in their category, as well as the coveted Best of Fest Award. Audience members can also vote for their favourite film to win the illustrious People’s Choice Award.
As an honour awarded by the viewers themselves, the People’s Choice Award is a fantastic accolade and provides an opportunity for the audience to show their appreciation for the films selected.
Voting boxes will be present in every venue alongside voting slips. Seen a film you love? Don’t forget to vote!
Alongside the films screening, ASFF runs a dynamic series of masterclasses and workshops with leading industry figures, working with such organisations as BAFTA, Channel 4, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Association of Camera Operators, Raindance, Double Negative, Beggars Group and many more. In the following festival days, there will also be guest programmes, networking opportunities and special events, as well as screenings from our guest countries: Japan, Iraq and Lebanon.
For ASFF tickets and passes head to the festival hub at Visit York, open daily 9.00am – 5.00pm.
