How do you get to showcase your film on the big screen?

Whether it’s a student short, a music video or scene of a feature you’d like to test on a live audience – Café Flicker is the place to go. For filmmakers, actors, and composers it’s a great opportunity to show your work, meet other filmmakers and connect with other creatives to collaborate with. For film enthusiasts, it’s a great night packed with short surprises.

The longest running short film open mic night in Scotland, Café Flicker has been going strong for over 25 years. Every month your short films are screened and the audience votes for their favourite film. All the winning films are screened at the annual showdown, The Big Flick, in December where the film of the year is crowned!
