The SHORT SOUNDS FILM FESTIVAL is dedicated to celebrating the craft and artistry behind the cinematic soundscapes which immerse, inspire and captivate us. The fifth annual festival will be held on the 24th-25th February 2022 as a hybrid of virtual and in-person events. We will once again be delivering an exciting programme of awards, industry talks, networking opportunities and of course, film. The films we feature put sound at the center, blending bold and vibrant creativity with the highest quality sound and music production.
The SHORT SOUNDS FILM FESTIVAL prizes the creators and innovators whose dedication to their craft has produced the world of sounds which keep us on the edge of our seats, fully immersed in the cinematic experience. SSFF is an opportunity to both celebrate and learn from the masters. Every year leading industry experts have shared their priceless wisdom and technical knowledge, and 2022 will be no exception.
As well as looking to the past, SSFF provides a space for a new generation to co-mingle and collaborate, allowing likeminded people to meet and for fresh sparks of creativity to flair as new projects are conceived.
Cinematic sound has the power to hold us in stasis. For a short while, the incessant background noise of life fades to black as we are suspended outside of time and space, transfixed. It is an integral part of the stories which enchant so many, yet is too-often goes unrecognized and undervalued. SSFF gives the sounds of cinema their time in the limelight.
