Emerging Filmmakers Night (aka EFN) is a quarterly short film festival that showcases work from up-and-coming directors to an audience of fellow filmmakers, industry professionals and film fans like us.

Every year, through 4 seasonal programmes, directors are given the opportunity to present their films, get feedback from a panel of experts, interact live with the audience, and win awards and industry-related prizes.

The team are gearing up for their Winter Edition which takes place on 25 JAN as a fully integrated and FREE live stream. Starting at 20:00, there’ll be 7 short films from around the world each of them followed with a live Q&A with the filmmakers.

The selected films are up for two awards on the night:

  • The Audience Favourite: Everyone who joins the stream can vote for their favourite, including the filmmaking teams and their friends.
  • The Critic’s Choice: Given to the film that wows our panel of experts that will also provide feedback on the night.

The live stream is presented by comedian Mike Sheer and curator Erifili Missiou.


How to get involved…

Book through EFN’s Eventbrite page for your FREE pass to join the livestream.
