Wow, what a night! Thank you to the Hackney Picturehouse and the Hen and Chickens Theatre for looking after us and providing us with two amazing venues to show off the talent that is TweetFest Film Festival.
Over the course of the three days we showed a total of 48 short films from every genre ranging from drama and comedy, animation and documentaries, all the way through to ghost stories (they should have their own genre surely!!) and even a touch of black comedy. It was tremendous to see the variety of incredible filmmaking that is available out there.
As always, there can only be a few winners. Without further ado, here are the award winners for TweetFest Film Festival 2018! We salute you all!
