Our Audience Award

Super excited to announce the most incredible prize for the winner of this year’s Audience Award.

The winner, voted for by the public, will get to see their name, and film, up in lights with promotion literally being spread from one big screen to another, displayed across Storm, Clear Channel’s huge digital billboards in prominent locations across the country.  See our interview with Ben Hope from Clear Channel for more details.

It’s one hell of an exciting opportunity to maximise exposure for your film, in true blockbuster style.

This is all thanks to our wonderful Soho neighbours, Clear Channel, who have partnered with us to take the festival to the broadest possible audience across the UK, driving awareness of independent film and sharing stories that matter across the nation. A truly money-cannot-buy prize!


SohoLIFF’s Liz Farahadi  talks to Russel Evan’s from Bullards Gin about their partnership with the festival.

Our partnership with Bullards Gin

SohoLIFF is a short film festival based in the heart of London’s Soho.

Founded by filmmakers that have been hosting screenings in Soho for the last 16 years, this eclectic festival is now in its third year.

We welcome a range of genres and have a particular interest in films with a social and environmental message, films that matter. We love films that could make a difference, that give a voice to those who have been marginalised. But, we just love great films; as long as they are engaging we want to see them!

From the dark and gritty to the eccentric and flamboyant!! We believe that you can tell important stories in any genre be it comedy, horror, sci-fi or serious drama and documentary – paint a picture.

Films help change the way people think and giving you a chance to walk in someone else’s shoes is really powerful – that is why this festival exists, to support filmmakers on their journey.

Be part of that journey with SohoLIFF and make a difference.
