Welcome to Alberta’s only film festival that is open to any creation date, pays screening fees, gives awards and presents a cash prize. Anything up to 60 minutes!
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.
The Red Carpet Gala on October 17, 2020 will feature the BEST of Alberta short films (15 minutes or less) while the Long Shorts program on October 18,2020 includes films from all over the world (up to 60 minutes).
The “Long Shorts Program” introduced in 2019 opens up a new category for films up to 60 minutes in length and takes place on October 18.. Submissions are open to Albertan, Canadian and International filmmakers. Both events will be held online due to COVID..
