Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF) has unveiled its full programme with the third edition of the festival to run Nov 8-10 at locations across York, England.

Alongside its main screening programme, with shorts screened in categories related to their genre, Aesthetica will also host a programme of award-winning shorts.

The six-strong line-up features:

  • Kris Kelly’s Here to Fall
  • Fyzel Boulifa’s The Curse
  • Johnny Barrington’s Tumult
  • Eamonn O’Neill’s I’m Fine Thanks
  • Will Anderson’s The Making of Longbird
  • Muriel d’Ansembourg’s Good Night.

The festival will also host a selection of short fiction, documentary and animation films from guest countries including Kuwait, India and Mexico, as well as celebrating the work of Screen Bandita, which restores previously abandoned Super 8 films.

Sightseers’ Alice Lowe, Film4’s Tom Leggett, Warp Films’ Barry Ryan and Film London’s Maggie Ellis are among the industry experts hosting masterclasses throughout the three-day event.

ASFF director Cherie Federico said: “Our screening venues cover all corners of the historic city of York, allowing festival-goers the opportunity to experience some of the best independent film while discovering the distinct and rich setting.

“I am very excited to bring you this year’s festival, with a truly exceptional line up of films and lively panel discussions to explore the nature of short film. It’s not often you can turn a city into a cinema.”
