Edinburgh Short Film Festival (ESFF) is accepting submissions for 2019 in any form of short film, genre, budgets and techniques, from any part of the world.

The maximum duration for submitted films is 25 minutes including credits.

ESFF will present awards and trophies for the best films for 2019 selected by the jury for Best Film, Best Animation & Best Scottish Short.

Devoted to screening short film from Edinburgh, Scotland and around the world, The ESFF evolved from the Leith Short Film Festival in 2011 and has shown everything – from the first film made in Somalia in 20 years, to Oscar nominated shorts from Australia, the USA and Ireland, as well as short films smuggled out of China and Iran – and hosted visiting film-makers from China, Russia, Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and all over the UK.

ESFF 2019 is scheduled for 24 October — 9 November.
