REVEALED: The Final 5 Entries For Our ShortList Shorts Competition In Partnership With Raindance


Stuff your Oscars. Keep your BAFTAs. It's all about the ShortList Shorts competition in partnership with Raindance Film Festival, and having whittled many, many entries down we can now bring you the final five. Hurrah.

Hundreds of you responded to our call to make a short film themed around 'A bad day at the office’ - so a huge pat on the back to anyone who entered, well done - and given we know one or two things about shortlists, let us assure you that the talent possessed by these debut filmmakers is frightening.

The winner will be announced at the ShortList Gala Screening at Raindance Festival tomorrow night, right before a screening of Matt Wilde's Kicking Off - and should you want to come along and see the prize awarded in person, tickets are still available.

In the meantime you can watch the five still in the running, below
