WSFF 2016 Short List (Official Selection)

Winchester Short Film Festival

We are delighted to announce the Short List (Official Selection) for the Winchester Short Film Festival 2016.

The following films have impressed the selection committee, and are nominated in their respective categories based on their ability to create an original story or to tell a story from an original viewpoint, to structure and pace that story appropriately to the short film format, for their technical finesse, and for their ability to connect with the audience.

The winners for each category will be announced at the awards ceremony, held in Winchester on 12th November 2016.
