Short Film Finalists 2017

From well over a hundred entries, the Short Film jury have whittled the shortlist down to just 24 films, some of which have been selected more than once across the 18 different categories. The films, each of an incredibly high standard, range in length from just 2 mins to 15 mins and were judged over 2 days with each project very carefully considered. Regrettably, not all the wonderful films that were entered can be shortlisted, and the jury were forced to make many difficult decisions during the judging process. Jury Chair, Jim Gilchrist said: “The quality was high this year, I'm super proud of the decisions we made, and those that have the golds coming really deserve it, some real standout work.”
