Each year at Sundance London we highlight some of the amazing talent we see in the Short Film artform, in films either produced in the UK or made by filmmakers based there. This year’s programme has an incredible array of voices and ideas, with timely dramas, insightful comedies, visceral animation and stunning non-fiction films. They explore human connection with inventive styles while entertaining you the way only film on the big screen can.

Don’t Forget (Director/Screenwriter: Mika Watkins)
Don’t Forget (or Wasurenaide in Japanese) is a smart and grounded bilingual horror that tells the story of a half-Japanese woman who begins to see her mother’s early-onset dementia as a monster that haunts them both.

Egungun (Director/Screenwriter: Olive Nwosu)
In search of healing, a young woman returns home to Nigeria, the country of her birth.

Precious Hair and Beauty (Director/Screenwriter: John Ogunmuyiwa)
An ode to the mundanity and madness of the high street, told through the window of an African hair salon

Sandstorm / Mulaqat (Director/Screenwriter: Seemab Gul)
Zara, a teenage girl, shares a sensual dance video with her virtual boyfriend, who begins to blackmail her into meeting him in person. Will Zara give in to this stranger’s increasing demands or will she set herself free?

Soft Animals (Director: Renee Zhan)
Two ex-lovers cross paths at a train station.

Some Kind of Intimacy (Director: Toby Bull)
In the British countryside, director Toby Bull observes the sheep that live on the land where his parents were buried several years ago.

An original perspective on bereavement, tackled with humour and tenderness.

Sub Eleven Seconds (Director: Bafic)
A rumination on time, loss, and hope, and a poetic imagining of the quest of Sha’Carri Richardson, a young track and field athlete, to achieve her dream of qualifying for the Olympic Games.
