Official Selection for Folkestone Short Film Festival 2021

We are delighted to announce the Official Selection for this year’s Folkestone Short Film Festival.

It has been a very tough couple of years and we had hoped to provide you with a physical event but unfortunately for logistical, financial and safety reasons we are unable to do that. So, for the second year running instead of a physical event, the whole festival will be held remotely. The official selections will be screened to the judges (and you here) who will individually watch the films and take notes. We will then meet via Zoom and collectively select each winner. (See here for more information).
