The Aesthetica Short Film Festival, founded in 2011, is an international film festival which takes place annually in York, UK, at the beginning of November. It a celebration of independent film from around the world, and an outlet for supporting and championing filmmaking. The festival is a BAFTA recognised short film festival. ASFF is a hotbed for talent discovery and a key annual event for emerging and established filmmakers to meet alongside industry professionals.
The festival programme is curated and culturally rich. We believe that great filmmaking has the power to change lives. Films have gone on to win awards at BAFTA and the Oscars as well as other festivals such Sundance, SXSW amongst others.
“In a world where the bridge between aspiring young creatives and the actual creation, production and distribution of film can seem increasingly hard to cross, events such as ASFF take on a new importance. Practical advice, industry insight and widely creative work to inspire and entertain make for a festival expert in cultural expression.” Jack Roe
