We are offering local filmmakers the chance to showcase their shorts alongside our feature films. One of our goals as a community cinema is to provide a platform for independent film, as well as an opportunity for local residents to discover emerging talent on their doorstep.

In essence an evolution of our much loved former shorts night Shorts in the South, short film submissions will be matched thematically with feature films, helping to spark conversation and create an invigorating cinema-going experience.

We welcome all genres by filmmakers from a range of backgrounds and experience levels. All we ask is that your film meets the following basic requirements:

  • Be under 15 minutes long;
  • Be completed within the last 3 years;
  • Be available in a digital format, e.g. .mov or .mp4;
  • The director, producer, or other key crew member currently resides within a 4 mile radius of SE25. Qualifying areas including South Norwood, West Norwood, Anerley, Penge, Crystal Palace, Central Croydon, South Croydon, Thornton Heath, Streatham, Beckham, Forest Hill and Dulwich.

Films will be considered on a rolling basis. If your film is selected you will be offered two free tickets and invited to come along and introduce your work. You can submit your film on FilmFreeway for a minimal submission fee.

We also have a Facebook group, for filmmakers living in, or working out of south-east London to share knowledge and find collaborators. Join the Shorts In The South // Network.

If you have any questions, or would like to submit a feature film for consideration in our weekly programme, then please drop us an email.
