LISFF 2018 will run December 9th – 12th. Submissions are now open!




After two successful years of sold-out screenings, premieres, and dozens of excellent short films, the London International Short Film Festival will return to Kino Bermondsey to once again showcase the very best of short form film in the heart of one of the world’s greatest filmmaking cities.

LISFF invites filmmakers and film fans to celebrate the possibilities of short film. Exhibiting filmmakers will be invited to screenings and networking events, and will showcase their talents, share their innovations, and build contacts for future collaborations.

New for this year: as LISFF is moving to a mid-December date, the festival will include a block of holiday movies celebrating the season, and will be awarding Best Holiday Short.

LISFF looks forward to welcoming new talent and filmmakers of independent spirit utilising low-budget innovation, and the LISFF Awards will celebrate the year’s best in their genres. See you in London!
