From the Syria conflict to modern terrorism and from suffragette surgeons to war art, the annual IWM Short Film Festival presents an imaginative, edgy and challenging selection of films responding to past and contemporary conflict. The festival shows documentaries, dramas and animations by filmmakers from all over the world. Screenings explore themes from displacement to fear, encouraging audiences to reflect on the films, their perspectives and their significance. Six awards will be given out to remarkable films, and at each screening you can cast your vote for the Audience Award. Filmmakers will also be in with a chance of having their film screened at Picturehouse cinemas. Please note, some of the films may be unsuitable for children.
