We curate, distribute, exhibit and promote short film and are dedicated to giving short filmmakers a platform to share their art with the world.

Short&Sweet has done the hard yards, we have witnessed the power of the medium, screening short films across cultures and borders. Launched as London’s only weekly short film evening in 2006, Short&Sweet has curated short film programmes for audiences in 21 cities and continues to connect moving image art to new audiences.

According to the founder, Julia Stephenson, the short film medium has the power to ‘liberate, educate, connect and delight. It is the most important medium of the future’.

Short Film isn’t merely a condensed version of a feature film, it is a critical art form on its own. Short film is a vehicle for those important messages that fall through the cracks of a worldwide media machine. It doesn’t need grand story arcs, dialogue or even actors, it allows filmmakers to stretch their imagination and experiment with new techniques – and so even just by its mere existence as an artform, it changes our idea of storytelling. Short film crosses borders, languages, cultures and creeds.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_btn title=”SUBMIT YOUR FILM!” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#101010″ outline_custom_hover_background=”#101010″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” shape=”square” size=”xs” align=”left” css=”.vc_custom_1607839497059{padding-left: 40px !important;}” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fgoo.gl%2F43t2Vk||target:%20_blank|”][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” bg_override=”ex-full” css=”.vc_custom_1501237107308{padding-top: 100px !important;padding-bottom: 100px !important;}” bg_color_value=”#101010″][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1501167327430{padding-right: 40px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”OUR MISSION” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1502722855976{padding-right: 40px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;}”][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_column_text]
