The Edmonton Short Film Festival is dedicated to the elevation of Independent film and the local film community, showcasing Alberta filmmakers. We love films that are on the fringe of the “normal” festival market and include diverse projects (newly created or “dusted off” favourites) including: trailers, music videos, web series, commercials, short films .
Advance tickets (until October 15) are $30 for the gala; $15 for the ESFF Long Shorts; or $40 for a Festival Pass which covers BOTH the Red Carpet Gala and the Long Shorts (a 20% saving from purchasing tickets separately at the door). Tickets (if available) at the door will be $35 for the gala; $15 for the Long Shorts PROGRAM. Festival passes are only available for advance purchase until October 15.
The Red Carpet Gala on October 19 features the BEST of Alberta short films (15 minutes or less) while the Long Shorts program on October 20 includes films from all over the world (up to 60 minutes). Both events are at the Garneau Theatre in the Metro Cinema.
The Gala event will also include the popular 360/VR screenings using state-of-the-art headsets. This special add-on (included in the ticket price) will be from 5-6:30 PM.
