Future Shorts is the largest short film network in the world. Since 2003 we’ve built a new audience for film across the globe, developed a platform for filmmakers that allows millions of people worldwide to engage with their work. Working across exhibition, distribution and experiential events, Future Shorts is the product of 9 years of audience development, experimentation and of reacting to the demand for another way of experiencing film. Operating online, in live events and through commercial distribution, we believe strongly in the social experience of film; in cinema as a communicator and community that should not be restricted by geography, status, wealth or politics. Sister company Future Cinema has become world renowned for re-imagining the cinema-going experience and championing “Live Cinema”, with events such as Secret Cinema receiving international acclaim from audiences and critics alike. The Future Shorts Festival is the biggest pop up film festival of its kind, showcasing the most exciting short films from around the world. Anyone, anywhere can set up a screening and be part of a massive screening network and a powerful global community. We are looking for explorers, adventurers, dreamers and those looking to be part of something that is changing the way we look at the world. We want to create a worldwide exchange of the most incredible stories and audiences. Future Shorts breaks boundaries, borders and conventions to connect a global audience to the world’s best short films. The creators of the acclaimed Secret Cinema, Future Shorts have redefined the way we experience film. The festival is a true celebration of cinema as a communicator and
