British Shorts is a Berlin-based film festival celebrating the cinematic works of filmmakers living and working in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. It is also a competition: Beyond watching some brand-new and innovative films, both the jury and the audience have the opportunity to award the best film with a prize. The film screenings are complemented with a number of concerts, comedy shows and parties.

The competition is open to various genres. Among them are drama, comedy, thriller, action, animation, experimental, documentaries, horror, science fiction and also music videos. The films are screened at two small and cozy arthouse cinemas: Sputnik Kino and City Kino Wedding.
