Part of Sydenham Arts Festival 2013

“Alternately sad, enthralling, disturbing…a testament to the diversity of an often over-looked format”  Total Film

“Well packaged and thoughtfully sequenced, the films assembled here provide a rare chance to see the best of British short filmmaking on the big screen” Sight and Sound

“From its opener onwards, BAFTA’s shorts darts refreshingly across the globe, flying through genres and filmic styles with seamless ease” Aesthetica
