Aesthetica Short Film Festival has selected Riflesso and No Added Preservatives for their festival programme.

The BAFTA qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival returns for its sixth year, running 3 – 6 November and taking place in 15 distinct venues across York.

This year’s festival will showcase more than 300 films as part of its Official Selection, and will also present a number of special screenings from guest countries and organisations. ASFF and the Northern Film School at Leeds Beckett University have teamed up to present a new award for 2016, celebrating best screenplay in the Official Selection.

Other new events include Morning Coffee hour – a place to discuss best practice – and the industry sessions such as Meet the Film Festivals return by popular demand. More than 28 masterclasses with leading film organisations will offer essential advice and support for both emerging and established filmmakers.
