In 2018 Sunderland Shorts returns to various venues around Sunderland’s city centre.


Sunderland Shorts is a pop-up film festival, so each year we occupy a number of differnt venues in Sunderland's city centre.

You can expect to visit a different venue each day of the festival, and our venues reflect the city’s diverse creative offerings. We hope they allow our audience to experience some great films in unexpected places.

We're still confirming our venues for 2018, so please follow us on social media for the most up-to-date news

  • Sunderland Empire
  • Sunderland Minster
  • Holmeside Coffee
  • The Independent
  • St Thomas Street Building
  • The Place Café
  • The Elephant Tea Rooms
  • Sunderland Software Centre
