This year’s Soho Shorts Festival will be the last, after Rushes announced it would no longer support the competition.

The Soho post facility saidthe 14 year-old festival will go into retirement because “to keep it running at the level it deserves required more resources, people, time and money than we are able to commit”. 

“It’s a very tough decision to not run next year but we feel it is time for us to move forward with other creatively innovative ways to engage with our clients,” said Rushes managing director Joce Capper MD Rushes.
