Festival Favourites from 40 years

10s, part 2

Our main anniversary programme Festival favourites from 40 years is a treasure trove of short film candy from across the festival history. There are winners of Oscars and Palm D’Ors – not to mention our own Jackdaw of course. First and foremost these are the audience favourites. 5 programmes neatly lined up – but sometimes wildly unkempt – per decade, for us to enjoy taste over time.
