Short Film Competition 2021: Documentary

  • Online

Our critically acclaimed indie filmmakers’ competition is back once again with a wide selection of films from across the globe and the quality is as high as ever! Ever heard the saying, “who doesn’t love a good Documentary?” – well, we’ve got loads of them! Enjoy our short documentary screening with films entered from across the world that are a mix of subject matters including; social, topical, national and global issues.

All films run between 2 minutes - 30 minutes and at the end, you will get the chance to vote for your favourite, contributing towards our "Raworths Audience Choice Award"!

This time, we are running the event virtually with all our short film competition screenings available from 23 April right through to the end of May when we will be holding our awards ceremony.

In 2020, our short film competition was voted a "Top 100" event among filmmakers - that was out of 4000 festivals globally - so you‘re sure to be in for a treat as you watch some of the latest animated independent cinema.
