What We’re Looking For
We are looking for bold stories told differently. The film industry is undergoing dramatic change culturally and technologically. We want to create an impactful and engaging programme of content that brings you on new adventures. We are supporters of creativity in all its forms and are exhibiting XR and 360 projects that immerse users in dynamic new worlds. This Lab runs alongside our new Games Lab.
Submit for 2024
The BAFTA-Qualifying Aesthetica Film Festival is a hotbed of new talent and ideas. It is a place of collaboration, idea generation and bold storytelling. We see the screen industry evolving and want XR storytelling and culture to be part of that conversation. You will have the chance to gain advice and feedback, meet industry professionals and exhibit at one of the UK’s leading film festivals.
ASFF is one of the UK’s leading and most expansive film events, recognised by the BFI as a festival of national significance and being both BAFTA and BIFA-qualifying for short film. The festival celebrates the work of outstanding filmmakers through its coveted awards. All films which are selected for the Official Selection will screen in competition and will be eligible for our Best in Category awards which are decided by a jury of industry experts and practitioners. In addition to the Best in Category awards, we present a number of special awards which offer project support, services as well as a combined total of £5000 in cash prizes.
The Award in this area of competition is for Best Game.
