LSFF2021: INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

“These twenty seven films that make up the international competition programme distill all that is invigorating about the global short film community. Drawing together a myriad of different forms and tones - from multi-part web-series to stereoscopic experiments; from Egypt, Taiwan and Macao - these works offer innovative new perspectives with vigour, wit and a worldly curiosity.

 

Many thanks to the international selection committee Ben, Jenna, Laura, Maria and Mo-Jai for all their hard work and stamina.”

 

— Tom Grimshaw, Senior programmer
