December 19, 2012, 7:59 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The London Short Film Festival is a ten-day showcase of the brightest upcoming talent on the independent film scene. It will return this January at a range of venues across the capital. To help film fans find affordable accommodation, website LondonTown.com has revealed details of a number of reduced rates for hotels in London close to many of the screenings.
The event culminates in the ‘Best Short Film Award'. Previous winners include You're The Stranger Here, a stark vision of a dystopian future, filtered through the warped mind of director Tom Geens. This year's line-up features titles like Night of the Living Docs, Lights, Camera Access and Lo-Budget Mayhem.
The LSFF is renowned for screening the darkest, most twisted and avant-garde material currently being produced. Alongside the screenings there will be workshops, training sessions, bands and various awards ceremonies. Venues include the Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Curzon in Soho and the Hackney Picturehouse. The festival runs from January 6th – 15th.
