The Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF) returns to York this November!!
The Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF) returns to York this November with screenings of outstanding independent film from all corners of the world popping up in a host of iconic and historic locations. 15 remarkable venues lead visitors on an exciting journey around the city, whilst introducing them to memorable independent short film.
Slip down one of York’s many snickleways to discover a stunning medieval hall and, once inside amidst the banqueting tables, watch documentaries from across the globe. Or why not take a walk around the city walls to catch films screening in a tower above the city? There’s something for everyone at ASFF, with films in all genres including drama, documentary, animation, comedy, thriller, music video, experimental, artists’ film and a new family friendly programme giving visitors the chance to create their own festival experience.
For those wishing to involve themselves further, masterclasses from BAFTA, Film4, Channel 4 and one of screenwriting’s most talked about talents Alice Lowe (Ben Wheatley’s recent hit Sightseers) dispense industry tips. ASFF will also present screenings from our guest countries: Kuwait, Mexico and India. It is a brilliant time to enjoy the city in its autumnal glory with a whole weekend of short films, networking, parties and events from just £30 for a 3-day wristband.
ASFF Director, Cherie Federico comments: “It’s a fantastic time to be in York, as the city is transformed by the festival. Our screening venues span the entire city, allowing festival-goers the opportunity to experience some of the best independent film while discovering the distinct and rich setting of York. We are really 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.”
