Trawling through their favourite shorts of the 2010s, they’ve put together this selection of standouts across fiction, animation and documentary. Come along for some of Scotland’s finest, including Alia Ghafar’s Salt and Sauce and Will Anderson & Ainslie Henderson’s BAFTA-winning Monkey Love Experiments
