As programmers, we’re constantly thinking about diversity with the films we serve up to you – our loyal audience. For me the perfect short film screening (or in this case playlist), should have range – if it’s all too similar in tone and style, it can feel a bit flat, but get the balance just right and you can create a viewing experience that gives you all kinds of feels.

Hopefully, our ‘Best of’ October playlist is just that! Featuring a pedal to the metal action flick, an emotive doc by a filmmaker trying to gain a better understanding of his deceased father and a devastating festival favourite that sees a childhood game go quickly wrong.
