The London Vaporetto Shorts Film Festival is a festival dedicated to short-films from emerging filmmakers. Created by Anouk Witkowska Hiffler and Tomás Felicio Oliveira, the festival is organised by the Vaporetto Films production company. Now in its second year, the 2025 edition will take place at the Art house Crouch end in London on the 6th of June 2025.

The aim of the festival is to create an environment in which all filmmakers will have the chance to network, build connections and perhaps find their next filmmaking partnerships.

The London Vaporetto Film Festival will have the following categories:

- Best UK short;
- Best INTERNATIONAL short;
- Best directing UK and International;
- Best script UK and International;
- Best cinematography UK and International;
- Best editing UK and International;

KEY DATES
Submissions open: 4th of June 2024
Submissions close: 30th of April 2025
Notification date: 16th May 2025
Festival: 6th of June 2025


SUBMISSION PROCESS

Submissions for the London Vaporetto Shorts Film Festival will open on the 4th of June 2024.

The submissions will close at 23:59 GMT on the 30th of April 2025.

Reviewing and analysing the films submitted to the festival will take time and effort from our team. For that reason, and because we want to provide you with a well organised festival, we charge an entry fee.


FILM REQUIREMENTS

All films must be narrative fiction films.

Submitted films can be of any part of the world and of any genre and should be no longer than 20 minutes in length (including credits).

Films in a language other than English must be subtitled in English.

All images and sounds used in your film must be your own or you must have permission of the copyright holder to use their content in your film.

We do not require any kind of premiere status.


SELECTION PROCESS

All submitted films will be reviewed by the London Vaporetto Film Festival team. We will analyse and choose films based on technical quality, originality and social relevance. Our decision is final.

By submitting your film to the London Vaporetto Film Festival you are giving us the permission to screen your film at screenings during the festival and at preview screenings.

We will notify all submitters, selected or not, by May 16 2025.

The festival reserves the right to use brief clips from the selected films to promote the festival on social-media.


ONCE SELECTED

If selected, our team will be in touch with you so that you can provide us with a high-resolution version of your film, as well as other marketing materials.

You will also receive a free ticket for the festival event.


WHERE AND WHEN WILL THE FESTIVAL HAPPEN

The London Vaporetto Shorts Film Festival will take place on the 6th of June 2025.

The festival will start with the viewing of all selected films, followed by the award ceremony right after. Once the awards are distributed, all filmmakers will have the opportunity to network between themselves and with the London Vaporetto Shorts Film Festival team. We believe that, more than a film festival, this should be an opportunity for you to network and find the people you will work with next.


WINNERS AND PRIZES

The London Vaporetto Film Festival will have the following categories:

- Best UK short;
- Best INTERNATIONAL short;
- Best directing UK and International;
- Best script UK and International;
- Best cinematography UK and International;
- Best editing UK and International;

The festival will aim to have a diverse selection of films, with dramas and comedies in the highlight.

Any matter not described in this regulation shall be left to the consideration of the London Vaporetto Shorts Film Festival directors.

Good luck to all the filmmakers! We look forward to reviewing your films!
