Two Short Nights Film Festival Moves Online

Published February 2, 2021

Film lovers rejoice! This February you can enjoy our very own Two Short Nights Film Festival from the comfort of your sofa. 

We have been championing the world of short film with our annual Two Short Nights Film Festival. The latest edition of the festival was due to be held in November 2020 but was postponed due to lockdown restrictions. We won't let that stop us though! We have rescheduled the festival to take place online from Thu 18 - Fri 26 Feb 2021, giving you a unique chance to experience the film festival buzz without leaving the house.

Tune in to stream hand-picked screenings, cast your vote for the Audience Choice Award, go behind the scenes with filmmaker Q&As, or dig out your glad rags for the virtual awards ceremony.

With nearly 40% of all the films selected for the festival hailing from the South West, moving the festival online means that more people than ever have the opportunity to experience the wealth of filmmaking talent in the region. A special Local Talent screening will be dedicated to showcasing the very best entries from across the South West, including filmmaker Joe Blandamer’s stop-motion short Overload which was awarded Best Animation at the Into Film Awards 2020. 

Don’t miss the 48 Hour Film Challenge screening where audiences can catch the results of this year’s festival competition to create a short film in just two days. 

The festival will be streamed on Film Festival Plus. Festival passes cost £13 (£10 concessions). Tickets to individual screenings are £3.99. The 48 Hour Film Challenge Screening and Live Pitch event are both free.
