Digital Drama has been short listed for the Imperial War Musuem Short Film Festival 2017 for ‘Deeds Not Words; The Suffragette Surgeons of WWI’.
In 2017, IWM Short Film Festival has seen nearly 700 entries across 78 different countries, which is a record for the festival. Running since 2001, and now in its sixteenth year, the festival encourages entrants to present imaginative and challenging films relating to IWM’s remit to understand the causes, course and consequences of war.
Matt Lee, IWM Short Film Festival Director says, “The sheer amount of entries for this year’s IWM Short Film Festival was incredible, and it is a testament to the quality of the submissions that we have a shortlist of nearly 40 powerful and provocative films – more than any we’ve ever showcased previously.”
Between Friday 17 and Sunday 26 November, audiences will have the opportunity to view these challenging, thought-provoking and inspirational films, which will be open to the public on a free, drop-in basis. Screenings will take place every day at 12pm, 2pm and 3pm in the Cinema at IWM London, with an additional screening at 1pm on Saturday 18, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November.
