The festival’s annual Satyajit Ray Short Film Competition is a celebration of new filmmaking talent that explores themes of South Asian experience, either in South Asia, or in the Asian diaspora. It particularly aims to highlight work that in some way links to the humanist vision of the great Indian director Satyajit Ray.
All short film entries will be considered for the Satyajit Ray Short Film Competition and the finally selected films will be screened at the festival. Other short entries may be selected to be screened at the festival if they tie into a particular theme of the year.
Shorts should be no more than 2 years old. Films are not eligible for resubmission if previously considered by the festival. Any language is acceptable but all films are required to be English subtitled.
All films for consideration should be supplied on a Vimeo link.
Early bird deadline: Friday 20th January 2023, £15
Regular deadline: Friday 17th February 2023, £20
Late deadline: Friday 10th March 2023, £40
The winning short film for 2023 will be announced at the Closing Night Gala in London.
