Venues across York are preparing to welcome filmgoers from 8 – 11 November when the Aesthetica Short Film Festival takes place as part of the York 800 celebrations.
The festival, supported by City of York Council to celebrate excellence and public involvement in this, the 800th year of self government, will take place in 15 locations which range from Mansion House and the Guildhall to bustling boutique cinemas in bars and shops across the city. The inspiring settings are set to delight visitors who attend this event.
This year’s festival has a cosmopolitan flavour, with films from over 25 countries worldwide being shown. These international screenings present a fascinating and unique insight into film culture globally through bringing original and exciting films to a new audience. The festival also displays some of the best talent from Britain, including some films that have already had great success on the UK festival circuit. There is also a great opportunity to hear talks from the members of BAFTA and Channel 4 and to witness masterclasses from film industry insiders.
