The 6th London Short Film Festival returns on Friday 9 January.
For 10 days, some of London's finest screening venues, including BAFTA, Shunt Vaults and Roxy Bar & Screen, will be hosting the best new music videos, documentaries, horror films and panel events.
The Festival opens at the ICA on Friday 9 January, 7.30pm, with a jam packed evening: DJ set by girl group Pens, live set by Midnight Expresso, visuals by Mr Hand By Hand and the premiere of the 3 Festival trailers funded by Vauxhall, directed by Lucia Helenka, Xanthe Hamilton & Michael Pearce, and Ben Slotover. Plus there's even a film screening of Lo-Budget Mayhem Shorts in the ICA Cinema 1 at 11pm (for tickets, see the ICA website).
On 18 January, you can catch The Black Dog's Progress and The Life Size Zoetrope on the big screen in the Leftfield + Luscious programme, 4.30pm, ICA Cinema 1 , in a collection of innovative and abstract new films; one of which will be awarded the Wallflower Press Award for best experimental film.
See you there?
