Encounters Festival is the UK’s leading short film and animation festival, and the annual meeting place for filmmakers and industry professionals. Based in Bristol, UK, Encounters runs a six day festival in September and its main venues are Watershed and Arnolfini, on Bristol’s scenic Harbourside. The festival is the leading UK gateway to the world’s most prestigious short film and animation awards, and nominated filmmakers qualify for the BAFTAs, the Oscars®, the European Film Awards and the Cartoon d’Or. Encounters Festival presents an annual International Competition showing the best new short and animated films from around the world, an Industry Forum offering masterclasses, panels and networking for filmmakers and professionals and an inspiring festival programme of screenings and events for everyone to enjoy.
