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.
With the TREMENDOUS success of our 360°/Virtual Reality screening, we will once again be accepting submissions from anywhere in the world to be part of this portion of the Festival. We are also pleased to announce a second day of screenings on Sunday October 20th that will feature films 15 minutes to 60 minutes in length.
