The BAFTA Qualifying ASFF: Aesthetica Short Film Festival is a celebration of independent film from across the world, and an outlet for supporting and championing short filmmaking. One of the UK’s most exciting site-specific events, this year’s festival will take place in 15 iconic venues across the historic city of York from 6 – 9 November 2014. Moving between medieval halls, galleries, museums and cinemas, ASFF invites audiences to create their own unique viewing experience.
The films span a diverse range of genres from comedy to music video, drama to documentary, and animation to artists’ film. New for 2014, ASFF showcases outstanding works from the fashion and advertising industries, working with London College of Fashion to establish a place for serious discussion about fashion film; its identity, responsibility to society and impact on visual culture. We also welcome Ridley Scott Associates and Jigsaw who will reveal the art of advertising and how filmmakers collaborate with brands such as Vivienne Westwood, Swarovski, Louis Vuitton, Trager Delaney etc.
