Osprey Short Film Awards 2015

“I feel it's very important for those of us who are established in films to make sure that we put ourselves out to encourage the next link in the chain. It's not difficult to put oneself out and it was greatly enjoyable watching their films and sharing their pleasure at the awards.”
What Are The Osprey Short Film Awards?
Each year at the festival we celebrate local film making by showing a selection of short films. A panel of judges select the very best of these films and reward the talented filmmakers the prestigious Ospreys.
The films selected for the 2015 competition will be shown at The Alhambra on Saturday 28th February at 1pm where the winners will be announced and presented with their prizes.
This year we have selected seven films with three of them made by young filmmakers under the age of 19. One film from each category will be awarded a prize and the audience will vote for the Audience Award.
