Rushes Soho Shorts Festival 2005London, U.K.July 30 - August 5, 2005Deadline: May 6, 2005
The annual Rushes Soho Shorts Festival features free screenings of short-listed films in bars, cafés and cinemas throughout Soho. Rushes Soho Shorts Festival's unique reputation as a non-profit making event, focused entirely on showcasing new talent, is enhanced each year. As a testament to this, a host of show-business luminaries came along to support the cause and present prizes at the 2003 awards night. However, the most important aspect of the festival is the impact that it has on the filmmakers who enter. In past years, winning directors have been snapped up by prestigious production companies immediately after their triumph and many films have gone on to achieve great success on the international festival circuit.
