LA1Shorts is an exciting and friendly short film festival based in the historic City of Lancaster in the North West of England. In 2016 we hosted our first festival at the city’s own “Dukes Cinema”, screening short films by local Lancaster and Morecambe film makers.

We are growing again for 2018 and the festival is now open to submissions from all UK short film makers! We look forward to screening two categories, so along with our overall winner we will also have a local “Lancashire” category.

To submit to LA1Shorts 2018 your short film will have to be made in the UK and have a maximum length of 10 minutes.

This festival offers filmmakers the opportunity to screen their films to a packed auditorium at Lancaster’s renowned Dukes Cinema. There will also be the chance to network and chat with other filmmakers after the festival screenings in the cinema bar.

Films can be submitted through FilmFreeway here
