We are a short film festival based in Hackney, London. We will screen the finalist films on a specific Hackney venue. Our Festival takes place twice a year.
At Screener Short Films we showcase the best and most outstanding international short films. Our mission is to encourage and support filmmakers throughout their creative process in order to provide the recognition they deserve. We are a platform whose main goal is to provide a space for short independent films which create their own unique language and content.

“A Teakettle’s Thermal Beings,” an evening of live performance and video works by Barbara Lattanzi, made between 1988 and 2014. The event is taking place as part of Microscope's series of “Imageless Film” performances in connection and collaboration with the “Imageless Films” series at Anthology Film Archives.
Children of the Moon: The Mercury Sign invites short films from Queer/Trans POC artists from Latin America and Latin American descent.
As a form of redefining by undefining, the program hopes to explore the organic, fluid nature of gender, identity, and spirituality within the collective queer voice as a unified community. An experience rendered vulnerable to a heteronormative universe that sacrifices their bodies as a consequence of their manifestation.
ONEIRIC TOPOGRAPHIES. THE FILMS OF DORE O. SCREENING LAV #011
“Located in the 'antechamber or language, even of consciousness', her newly restored films occupy an in-between state that cannot be easily interpreted or verbally addressed. Her associative flow of images and sound acts as a deliberation on his sensuality. In a dreamlike density and a strange suspension of time, O.'s films induce a heightened sense of perception somewhere between hypnosis and clarity.” - Masha Matzke
