We began our regular short film night in March 2014 with the hope that it would be a great opportunity for filmmakers to showcase their work at a renowned, much loved cinema as well as the chance to showcase all that is great about short films to those who wouldn't normally see them.

Over the course of four years we screened some of the best short films made by North East filmmakers, we hosted Q&A’s and worked with Northern Film and Media, as well as Creative England to bring award winning short films from across the world, to a new audience in the North East. We’re immensely proud to have given so many filmmakers their first public screening, and help renew the public’s interest in short filmmaking.

In 2017 we decided to hand over the Short Film Night to the very capable team at the Tyneside Cinema and BFI Network. It’s great to see the event continue to attract some of the best and brightest filmmaking talent and wish everyone involved every success.
