One of the great joys of our collective return to cinemas will be the chance to see some content that had only previously been available online.

London Short Film Festival takes place each January and is one of the capital’s first major screen events of every year. The 2021 edition took place (mostly…) online this year for obvious reasons, but organisers have released a series of programmes featuring highlights from some of their most popular events for screening in venues when they reopen.

The first of these we’ve spotted on sale screens at Catford Mews from 25 to 28 June 2021 over three tantalising programmes as follows:

London Short Film Festival – FUNNY SHIT at Catford Mews (25 JUN 19:30):

London Short Film Festival – PULP FICTIONS at Catford Mews (27 JUN 16:30):

“Assassinations, family feuds, vampiric seductions and tough crooks are the order of the day in this London Short Film Festival selection of noir-tinged genre pieces.” [Featured image: THE RECORDIST d. Indianna Bell & Josiah Allen]


London Short Film Festival – ANIMATION VARIETY SHOW at Catford Mews (28 JUN 17:30):

“Sexed up washing machines, analyses of patriarchy and the existential hallucinations of a dying fish await in this ever-unpredictable collection of the best and brightest animation talent.” [Featured image: IN HER BOOTS d. Kathrin Steinbacher]


Catford Mews will make more reopening programme announcements very soon. The 2022 edition of London Short Film Festival is scheduled from 14 to 23 JAN 2022.
