Shorts Programme 2
We love short films and think they are a wonderful format for science fiction themes.
Each year we receive hundreds of excellent films and it is a challenging task to select for our shorts programme.
We have put together six programmes, each showcasing a cross-section of countries, styles and sensibilities.
