THE BEST OF THE SOUTH WEST
As creatives and film fans whose hearts are firmly tied to the South West, Homegrown Shorts is our way of giving a platform to the emerging cinematic voices in our beloved region.
Featuring short films shot in, inspired by or created by filmmakers hailing from our cosy corner of the British Isles, the event is regularly hosted by Curzon Cinema & Arts in Clevedon, North Somerset. As one of the oldest still functioning purpose-built cinemas in the UK, this cinema has an incredible legacy of entertaining the filmgoers of Somerset, and it's a privilege to be an ongoing part of its legacy.
