Now in its 16th year, the festival offers an established platform for audiences to see regional, national and international short films, and is proud to nurture new and emerging talent.

This year’s festival will take place on the Thu 30 Nov and Fri 1 Dec 2017 across our cinema, main auditorium and workshop spaces. It will include screenings, talks, live film pitches and the premiere of seven films and moving image works commissioned by Exeter Phoenix during 2017.
