What is it?
Encounters Film Festival, the festival dedicated to short film and animation, takes place in Bristol from Tuesday 20th to Sunday 25th September.
Audiences can expect five days of the best short films from around the world, alongside a series of special big screen events, a comprehensive industry programme, and free public screenings for all the family.
The festival is a chance to see films from 90 seconds to 20 minutes long, that will make you laugh, cry, scream and squirm. Visitors can head to the Late Lounge for some of the most sexy content, or the award winners’ screenings, to spot films from famous faces and future stars.
Dublin born director Damien O’Donnell’s latest short, How Was Your Day? features in the festival’s international film competition, along with shorts from Reggie Yates, Gavin Scott Whitfield and Phil Davis. Martin Freeman, Jack O’Connell, Andrew Scott and Richard Herring also feature in various new short films.
