Anyone, anywhere can set up a Future Shorts screening.

Every season we put together a 90-minute programme of award-winning international short film, handpicked from festivals around the world.

For over 13 years we have worked across exhibition, distribution and experiential events, reacting to the demand for other ways to experience film. 

The Future Shorts programme often runs in tandem with other events, collaborating with local filmmakers, musicians, artists across a vast network of theatres, music halls, beach bars, restaurants, galleries, clubs and warehouses - and we’ve created the largest short film network in the world. 

As part of the Secret Cinema group, Future Shorts brings new audiences to short film often not seen beyond the festival circuit.

Become part of our growing network and vibrant global community.

Future Shorts also offers a bespoke programming service for partners looking to share short film across challenging platforms.  

We have worked with PEN InternationalEdge of ArabiaHondaGlastonbury Festival and Samsung
