A one month online showcase of films that share stories from all over the world, bought together for an internet festival to create a moment of togetherness for our artist film community and dissolving boarders during 2020’s global lockdown. We celebrate artist filmmakers from around the globe & across genres, and, in tough times such as this, we want to continue to champion an international spirit and empathetic creativity.
From playful vignettes to personal poems,handprinted animation to music videos; these eclectic works have been brought together in a screening of exciting artist film focused on the act & art of ‘storytelling’, and free to stream for the whole of July! Featuring films from Australia, Germany, Greece, India, Romania, the UK & USA.

“This genre blending collection of short films aims to create a space of exchange and community in a time of separation. From digital playfulness to traditional techniques, political action to the absurd, from collective queer & fat liberation to examining cis- masculinity through a solo personal lens; MicroActs champions the subjective, and its power to connect & inform.
By removing the barriers of rigid themes, there is space to share our most intimate of stories, our rituals and coping strategies, how we exist in the world. Those vulnerable moments of euphoria and of disappointment, isolation and togetherness, MicroActs Artist Film Festival celebrates moving image as declaration of self.” – Liberty Antonia Sadler
