On the 8th December a host of popular faces arrived at the prestigious British Academy of Film and Television Arts, for the 2nd Annual TriForce Short film Festival.

The Tri-Force Short Film Festival (TFSFF) began in 2012 with the main objective to present quality short films as well as support, recognise and honour filmmakers creating films under 20 minutes. It is the brainchild of actors Jimmy Akingbola and Fraser Ayres.  The festival provides a free platform for up and coming film makers to showcase their work on the big screen, this festival now has a vast and loyal network of over 20,000 people. Due to the great success of last year, Tri-Force Short film festival has returned for their second year.
