Southampton Film Week 2020 was a unique iteration of the festival, due to the COVID lockdown that was taking place in November. However, we persevered, and scheduled a festival of online events, including the annual SFW: Shorts competition and the Short Story Cinema screening. The films were hosted online on the City Eye vimeo page, and votes were cast in the run up to the 14th, where the winners were announced live.
