The Shortest Nights is an annual celebration of short film, inspired by the shortest day of the year. We curate a series of cutting-edge programmes featuring new works from emerging British filmmakers, which are screened at a one-day festival mid-June. The collection can be found screening at various arts venues, community cinemas and music festivals around the UK throughout the rest of the year.

The next Shortest Nights collection will premiere at The Yard Theatre in Hackney Wick, on June 18th 2017.


Short Sighted Cinema offer programmes of the very best emerging British talent, with everything from animation to comedy, drama to documentary – with a gritty edge and a comic tone. We take our audiences on a journey through each theme, with highs and lows that will bring you to tears, inspire you and leave you laughing with joy.
