The BAFTA Qualifying ASFF: Aesthetica Short Film Festival is a celebration of independent film from across the world, and an outlet for supporting and championing short filmmaking. One of the UK's most exciting site-specific events, this year's festival will take place in 15 iconic venues across the historic city of York from 6 - 9 November 2014. Moving between medieval halls, galleries, museums and cinemas, ASFF invites audiences to create their own unique viewing experience.
In the link below Cecilia Stenbom discusses four of her films which explore notions of fear, perceptions of crime and obsessive compulsive behaviour within society.
Commissioned by the North East Contemporary Visual Arts Network (CVAN), this is one of eight films that will be exclusively launched in partnership with This Is Tomorrow over the course of eight weeks. Taking stock of the increasing national and international recognition that artists based in the North East are attracting, the films profile and celebrate the recent bodies of work and wider practices of the selected artists.
