Once again, we have some incredible films made for the SCI-FI-LONDON 48hour Film Challenge.

101 teams managed to complete the challenge this year and write, shoot, edit, grade and deliver an original science fiction film – in a weekend!

We will, of course, be showcasing some of our favourites, in the meantime, the hardest job we have to do is over – selecting just ten films for the shortlist.

These outstanding films shone out and our team felt they deserved to be put in front of our expert jury.    And to all those who took part, don’t be too disheartened, you made a film in a weekend – of itself, an amazing achievement.

So, in no particular order, the shortlisted films are:

END POINT by Team Inventors

SHE LIES SLEEPING by Team Baxter’s Bunch

MELTING POINT by Team Flying Visitors

TEN TIMES TEN by Team Teiam

VANISH IN SMOKE by Team Cranky

THE MEETING by Team Save The Bees

DAY ONE by Team The Aleph

ALL INCLUSIVE by Team Broken Bricks

THAT PHONE CALL by Team Hyvemind


We will be announcing our additional ‘special mentions’ very soon.

Thank you to everyone who took part and best of luck.

Louis & the SFL team.
