WELCOME FILM MAKERS AND FILM LOVERS!
The Edmonton Short Film Festival (ESFF) showcases Alberta filmmakers outside of the “normal” festival market and features diverse projects (newly created or “dusted off” favourites) including: trailers, music videos, web series, commercials, short films … as long as it’s less than 15 minutes, we’ll accept it! The ESFF is dedicated to the elevation of Alberta Independent film and the local film community .
This year we have moved to the Orange Hub in the John L. Haar Theatre for the Gala on October 13, due to the Alberta government’s closure of the Historic Royal Alberta Museum Theatre. This beautiful 340 seat auditorium has a ticket office, multi floored bars and much more. You can now buy your October 13th Gala tickets to see the best of Alberta indie film!
A NEW 360/VR category has been opened for 2018 and selected films will be screened in a 10k projection system in KODI 17.1 surround sound on October 12th at the newly renovated Zeidler Dome Theatre in the Telus World of Science. Submit your 360 Degree and Virtual Reality films and buy your tickets here!! Nothing like this has ever been done in North America, you can be part of this revolutionary experience……if you dare! This segment of the film festival is the ONLY ONE open to international submissions, all other categories are ONLY Alberta based.
