After two years of sold-out screenings, premieres, and dozens of excellent short films, LISFF is delighted to return to Kino Bermondsey for a third year. LISFF 2018 will run December 9th – 12th.

Tickets are now available!


LISFF invites filmmakers and film fans to celebrate the possibilities of short film. We’re especially excited to be showcasing new talent, and filmmakers of independent spirit making creative and innovative use of low budgets. Please follow us on Twitter for updates, and see you there!
