The Imperial War Museum has announced the winners of IWM Short Film Festival 2017, the UK’s only film festival which explores the causes, course and consequences of conflict. 

The 37 entries were whittled down to three winners, who have produced films exploring complex themes ranging from the Calais Jungle, to the untold story of a military hospital in the First World War run solely by suffragettes.
 
The three winning films are:
  •  Beauty of a Stateless Mind, a film exploring the lives of three artists living in the Calais Jungle refugee camp
  • Deeds not Words: The Suffragette Surgeons of WW1 unveiling the suffragettes who founded and operated a military hospital in the First World War
  • Lula which follows the dilemma of a pregnant woman in German-occupied Poland who is confronted with undesirable visitors in the midst of the Second World War

See the winning films

Visitors to IWM London will be able to see the winning films for themselves, with free screenings running daily until Sunday 26 November 2017. By rating the films they have seen, the viewing public will also determine the final award, the Audience Vote Award, which will be revealed on IWM social media channels after the close of the Festival on 26 November.
