The Short Sounds Film Festival is the world’s first dedicated celebration of cinematic sound and music. The 2017 SHORT SOUNDS FILM FESTIVAL will be held at the PDSW Bournemouth between 12 – 15 October 2017.

The world is full of NOISE, loud, raw and unrelenting on our ear drums. Escaping it is nigh on impossible and in time it fades motionless to the background of our lives, HOWEVER…

… in the temple of cinema, the crude ore of NOISE is crafted by unsung masters into sculpted waves designed to wash sensually upon our ears with majesty and wonderment. Rich in resonance, subtle in sentiment and lasting in legacy, this mesmerising process has seen NOISE become SOUND.

The Short Sounds Film Festival is the world’s first dedicated celebration of cinematic sound and music. An event to champion the audio wizards that fill our heads with SOUNDS that make our heart race and SCORES that storm our souls. This October, join us in central Bournemouth for a programme of films richly authentic in their use of sound and music and a whole host of uniquely engaging experiential installations designed to challenge your very relationship with cinematic audio.

Come free your ears from the monotony of NOISE and tantalise them with the glory of cinematic SOUND
