Cheap Cuts Documentary Film Festival is the only UK festival dedicated exclusively to short documentaries. Cheap Cuts showcases the best of British and international short documentary talent. We strongly believe in content over form and are interested in the stories you have to tell and not the equipment or budget used to do so.

This year’s event is entirely online and you’ll be able to access the films at any point during the festival period (29/06 – 05/07) Watch when it suits you!

Cheap Cuts is committed to helping promote equality within film and every year at least 50% of our programme is formed of short documentaries directed by women. Our programme offers a variety of filmmaking styles; including experimental, animation and observational documentary and there are some great appearances from films that really push the boundaries of documentary.

**Please be aware that due to geo-blocking restrictions required by some filmmakers/distributors, a few titles in our programme are only available to viewers in the UK. UK only films have been specified on the programme**
