Films

As new doors open for short filmmakers, we're opening our own doors to a rich and diverse line up of great new short films from around the world with this 17th annual edition of the event.

As always, ShortFest has culled a huge selection of dazzling new animated, live action and documentary short films for its line-up from among 3,000 submissions to the event this year. And while these films are short in length, they are long on entertainment value – in turns amusing, enlightening, challenging and provocative – all of which adds up to the perfect recipe for a great time at the movies. Join us in celebration of the gifted young filmmakers who are providing this filmic feast, and who will enliven the cinema for decades to come.
