Welcome to the Leigh Short Film Festival website

Festival News

This year's festival details...

Our festival has grown this year to span several dates as well as the main event on Saturday 7th October. We've connected with several other organisations in the Borough to bring you more film screenings.

A selection of films for all ages are being screened at The Pelican Centre in Tyldesley, Leigh Sports Village, ALRA North in Wigan and Leigh Parish Church. Full details can be seen on our Festival Events page of this website.

For our Short Film event on Saturday 7th October, the doors will open at 6pm with a bar & refreshments available throughout the evening. The selected films will be shown between 7pm and 9.30pm with an interval in between. We finish the evening with after-show drinks.

After the films have been shown, there will be an opportunity to participate in an internet vote to declare the winner of the evening's "Audience Choice" award.

Tickets are £5 and available online at our Box Office. Alternatively, please get in touch with us via the Contact page.

Travelling to the Festival ?

This year we can again offer a preferential rate for rooms booked at the Leigh Holiday Inn Express on the night of the Festival, which is only a short Taxi ride from our venue.

Please contact the Festival organising committee for more information via the Contact page.
