I’ve been following the Sci Fi London 48hr Short Film Competition where they just released the shortlist. Despite this gilded age of global communication and the fact we pretty much actually live in the future (compared to most sci-fi film makers before us), it is unnecessarily complicated to view and compare all the entries which made the shortlist, so I compiled this cheat sheet to save time.

Please share this post if you like it and enjoy your five minute short film marathon!

I’ve posted them in the same “no particular” order as the original shortlist but unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find all of them. The ones I couldn’t find were:

  • Running on Empty
  • Friends and Enemies
  • Five Year Cycle
  • Agony Aunt
  • Final Command
  • My Life Eternal
  • The Company’s Man

If you find one that’s missing, drop the URL in the comments. Thanks!
