Short Sounds Film Festival is the world’s first film festival dedicated entirely to the cinema’s crafts of sound and music.
We at Short Sounds Film Festival love the unsung heroes. And who else is a better candidate for such a title than film and video game composers and sound designers? Their work is integral to the pace, setting, tone and general atmosphere to what we see on screen and deserves greater recognition.
We screen a selection of short documentaries, dramas, animations and music videos alongside commercial work and video game titles which push the boundaries of sound design and music. We want to open up conversations about short films and inspire the next generation of movie makers.
In 2019 the Short Sounds Film Festival will return with a new celebration of cinematic SOUND and MUSIC. A festival to champion the audio wizards that fill our heads with SOUNDS that make our hearts race and SCORES that storm our souls. In 2019, join us in central Bournemouth for a programme of films richly authentic in their use of sound and music and a whole host of uniquely engaging experiential installations designed to challenge our relationship with the sounds of cinema.
