We want to ensure audiences have a welcoming and enjoyable experience at the London Short Film Festival, and have plans in place to ensure your visit is accessible and hassle-free.

Captioning and BSL Provision

My Eye is My Ear, The Space Belongs To Them, our London Lives and Romantic Matinee Captioned screenings and Bonded 3.0 will have full d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing access provision, with descriptive captions, BSL-interpreted introductions and Q&A.

Relaxed Screenings

We present a series of relaxed screenings of our Competition programmes at ICA towards the end of the festival, where you are free to move around, leave if needed, or use devices.

Oska Bright: Other Worlds is a relaxed screening for those with neurodivergence or additional learning needs.

For events in ICA Theatre, a seated area will be provided, and we will endeavour to ensure everyone who wants or needs to has a place to sit with a good view of the event.


All of London Short Film Festival’s 2024 venues have level access and are wheelchair accessible. Detailed access information for each venue can be found on their respective websites.


Each of our venues will have additional signage to help you find your screening. Please ask a member of the team if you need help finding the right screen.

Safe Space Policy 

London Short Film Festival’s intention is always to create a safe and inclusive environment in which all cinema-goers – regardless of ability, race, gender or background – feel welcomed and respected. We operate a zero-tolerance policy on disrespectful or derogatory language or behaviour and harassment of all kinds. 

We request that our audiences are active in looking out for one another, and staff will be present at every screening and event to assist you.
