what is micro short films?

Micro Short Films creates opportunities for meaningful professional networking through hands-on filmmaking experiences. Focused on the production of very short no/low-budget films, the initiative unites primarily BAFTA members to collaborate and forge lasting connections. By emphasizing action over talk, Micro Short Films has produced a diverse array of award-winning films and continues to strengthen the film industry from within.
