All taking place at THE FORUM, NORWICH. 

As #NFF17 celebrates SHORT filmmakers work - we are excited to screen some of the BEST short films submitted to this year's festival. Featuring AWARD-winning films from the UK around the globe, these Officially Selected Films will hook you in from start to finish. 

If that wasn't enough we're pleased to be welcoming ACTOR and NFF Patron, TIM MCINNERNY (Notting Hill, Eddie The Eagle, Race, Blackadder, Games of Thrones) for a special In Conversation about his work in the film business.
