Featuring 25 short films, the free event was given a local boost with Emily Richardson’s The Futurist wowing the crowds.

The film used a 360-degree technique to capture Scarborough’s theatre in all of its glory and the Market Halls joined an eminent list of venues to showcase the film, which includes festivals in Venice, London and Moscow.

Artist Paul Spencer also premiered his documentary which focused on the Scarborough electro-punk band Fuzzgun Sniper.

Organisers hailed the event a great success, with many visitors also taking part in an interactive programme to watch exclusive new QR-coded videos.
