IWM Short Film Festival

From the Syria conflict to modern terrorism and from suffragette surgeons to war art, IWM Short Film Festival presents an imaginative, edgy and challenging selection of films responding to past and contemporary conflict.

Following a record year of entries, the festival will showcase documentaries, dramas and animations by filmmakers from all over the world, and the screenings explore themes from displacement to fear. The special evening events offer an insight into the challenges of documenting terror and a chance to experience hostile environment training.

Six awards will be given out to remarkable films, and at each screening you can cast your vote for the Audience Vote Award. The Festival is part of Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11, a major exhibition season showcasing contemporary artists’ responses to war and conflict since the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001.

Discover IWM London

IWM London (previously known as Imperial War Museum) tells the stories of those whose lives have been shaped by war through the depth, breadth and impact of their galleries, displays and events.

With both large-scale hardware (including the two gargantuan naval guns before the entrance) and exhibitions on the social effects of war, the Museum now covers all conflicts in which British or Commonwealth forces had been involved since 1914 to present day. The museum underwent a major internal redesign and refurbishment and reopened in 2014 in time for the First World War Centenary commemorations.

Visitors will be able to explore what life was like at home during the Second World War in A Family in Wartime, discover how war changed lives in the award-winning First World War Galleries, or see work by some of Britain’s most significant 20th Century and contemporary artists at IWM Contemporary.

The historical IWM London museum displays both permanent and temporary collections on wide-ranging topics and themes from war art to modern-day combat.
