The ASFF 2014 Festival Hub is Officially Up and Running at Visit York

Taking place across the city of York, ASFF celebrates independent short film from around the world. This morning, the team officially opened the Festival Hub at Visit York. In preparation for the busy four days ahead, audiences will be able to purchase and pick-up their festival passes and tickets every day from 9.00am until 5.00pm. Located in the heart of the city, Visit York, the official tourist information centre, is the perfect place to chat about this incredible event, and learn more about the 300 films screening across 15 dynamic venues. With films spanning a wide selection of genres, as well as a fantastic series of masterclass, workshop, and industry networking events, there’s plenty of choice for everyone. We’ve even compiled a medley of films especially for younger viewers in our Family Friendly screening.

Don’t forget to enter the ASFF Prize Draw Competition at the Festival Hub for your chance to win a Sonos Play: 1 Wireless Speaker System, courtesy of Richer Sounds. The award winning Sonos wireless multi-room system is easy to set up and use: start with one speaker and add more over time.
