Blink of an Eye Shorts Programme

Blink of an Eye Shorts Programme Main Image

SCI-FI-LONDON is committed to presenting short films as a part of the festival line-up. Each year we put a call out for short film and each year we receive hundreds of amazing stories from around the world.

It is always a difficult task to select which films to bring you, so many of them are exceptional. However, we hope we have brought together a great and eclectic mix of fantastic film for our 7th festival. Some funny, some thought-provoking, some downright nasty, something for everyone, don’t miss them.

We screen all 19 movies back-to-back at the following times:

THUR 1st MAY - 6.30PM
SUN 4th MAY - 3.30PM
