Shortlist announced: vote for your favourite film

This year, we asked for your films about ‘Family Business’. Hundreds of you entered and, after much deliberation, argument and debate, we're delighted to reveal this year's shortlist.

While we let Jaime Winstone, Eugene Simon, Lisa Bryer and the rest of our judges decide which film wins the £10,000 Grand Prix, it’s up to you to select this year's People’s Choice Award winner. 

Voting is simple. Select your favourite from the list below and place your vote.  All winners will be announced at the Short Film Awards in May.
