Goodbye from Greenhorn!

Goodbye from Greenhorn!

After five fantastic years Greenhorn Short Film Festival is closing up shop. We have had such a great time and could not have done it without your support, but all good things come to an end. Over the course of the festival’s history we have been proud to showcase an array of amazing short films by emerging filmmaking talent, host eclectic cross arts events and create learning and networking opportunities for aspiring filmmakers. Our team of volunteers have worked tirelessly across all the exciting venues that Greenhorn have called home over the years. It’s been a roller coaster ride and now we are focusing on new endeavours. Alix has moved to Devon, taking on role of Digital Programme Coordinator at Exeter Phoenix and Flora is expanding her alter-ego’s persona and artist moving image practice.

We will still be stalwarts on the short film circuit so see you at the next pop-up rooftop poolside screening! Keep in touch!

Best Of The Fest Award

As a festival that exists to nurture a new generation of filmmakers, every year we like to recognise the film that best represents brilliant work by emerging creative talent. It was with great pleasure we presented the Greenhorn Short Film Festival 2015 BEST OF THE FEST Award to Jimmy Dean’s Charity!

Set in a run-down coastal town, Charity presents a bleak and barren portrait of a broken family attempting to mend itself. The understated action is given weight by deep emotional undercurrent, the script is peppered with some of the festival’s most truthful dialogue, and the whole film is painted in a cold, lonely palette of seaside blues and greys.

With a strong female lead, incredibly genuine script and carefully considered cinematography, this is a remarkable filmmaking debut by a young director we’ll be hearing a lot more about.

Greenhorn Shorts: The Selection

Anna in the Dark website









If there’s one thing every film festival needs, it’s a glittering opening ceremony. The buzz of the crowd, the grins of the filmmakers, the twinkle of the smartphone camera flashes! Come 11th November, festival fever will descend on the ArtHouse Crouch End for The Selection, the opening screening of the Greenhorn Short Film Festival 2015!

Returning to our glorious hub venue for another year, we’ll be screening a selection of the animated and live action short films that really caught our eye from this year’s submissions, followed by a chance to meet the filmmakers and the presentation of the Best of the Fest Award.

And we couldn’t be happier to be back at the ArtHouse Crouch End. Once a Salvation Army music hall, the building has been reborn as a cultural venue that exists to break down barriers between normally disparate artistic media. An organisation after our own heart!

Tickets available via the ArtHouse Crouch End Box Office

No, this isn’t a list of (really great) band names. It’s just a sample of some of the delights awaiting the lucky audience of our It Came From Japan screening on the 12th November, held in collaboration with our partner Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia!

SSFF & ASIA is a brand dedicated to the creation of film culture and the fostering of a worldwide creative community through talks, seminars and interviews, working with various companies and organisations and finding ways to monetise and promote short film. We’re proud to be partnering with such a strong advocate of new filmmaking talent!
