ACT ONE is Shorts On Tap's platform for actors, musicians, and poets to perform live before an audience of filmakers & film lovers. A new space for live entertainment in London.

ACT ONE serves as an opener to Shorts On Tap screenings: a slot of 20/30 minutes for artists to perform and present their craft to SOT's great audience. Each screening revolves around a different theme and the Act One performances should (ideally) adhere to the topic of the night.

ACT ONE invites performers to check Shorts On Tap's forthcoming screenings' concepts and feel free to propose their piece to fit in with the event. Applicants can send their proposals in form of links, scripts, recordings to
