Returning for its fifth year, Greenhorn will be bringing it’s signature programme of high quality shorts with an unusual slant by first time and emerging short film makers to ArtHouse Crouch End (Best Cinema, Time Out 2014). The Festival will take place from 11-15th November and will also encompass cross arts events, panel discussions, workshops and networking and industry opportunities.

Greenhorn Short Film Festival was founded by Alix Taylor and Flora Bradwell in 2011 with the principal aim of celebrating new and emerging filmmaking talent. The festival provides a platform for the best upcoming filmmakers to screen and discuss their work in a professional and friendly environment. Accessibility is key to Greenhorn and we aim to keep ticket prices and submissions fees as low as possible. Through the annual festival Greenhorn also hopes to expand knowledge and appreciation of short film, hoping that our passion for a beautifully crafted short film rubs off on audiences attending our events.

“Greenhorn is stimulating, original, healthily anarchic and sharp as a row of needles. In short, a breath of fresh air.”
Mike Leigh, Greenhorn Short Film Festival Patron
