Programme 2015


Greenhorn Short Film Festival is back and as well as championing emerging filmmaking talent we are also celebrating our fifth Birthday this year! Returning to our hub venue ArtHouse Crouch End (Best Cinema, Time Out 2014) this year’s festival promises to bring the best new short films and offer filmmakers exciting industry opportunities. Taking place from 11 to 15 November our fifth edition brings you five days of short film screenings, panel discussions, workshops, cross-arts events and networking across three London venues. Greenhorn invites you to journey East with our partners Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia for our It Came From Japan screening; have a giggle at Laughter Live; escape the everyday with our Sunday Strange World screening and meet peers and industry professionals at our Greenhorn Industry Day at The Proud Archivist. We are also excited to announce our collaboration with Bertha DocHouse, join us at their Curzon Bloomsbury screen for I Am What I am an evening of documentaries that explore costume, glamour and downright fabulousness. To get us well and truly in the festival mood we open with our old favourite, The Selection, a collection of beautifully crafted shorts from the best first time and emerging filmmakers.
